When PTA finally wins his Oscars, it will be Scorsese-style: two decades late and for entirely the wrong movie.

You mean: it will be for co-writing that Pinocchio movie for Downey Jr!

Has there been any reactions to the film thus far? I know someone posted earlier that they talked to someone that said that it was "great and weird." Any early buzz?

According to IMDb, Anderson’s camera choices for “Phantom Thread” are identical to “Inherent Vice,” including the use of the Kodak Vision3 200T 5213 and the Vision3 500T 5219. Similar to his last feature, “Phantom Thread” will reportedly be presented in 35mm and blown-up 70mm in select locations.

This made me laugh:

I've been told this film will probably be polarizing, perhaps even between fellow PTA fans and that DDL has a pretty low key performance in this. A great performance, but not the type that wins awards. People expecting a big theatrical exit for DDL will be disappointed.

What about the performances of Krieps or Manville

I don't expect this to get many awards nominations anyway outside of DDL and costume

If he hasn't sexually harrased anyone in the last twenty years, he may have a better shot at more awards.

That's quite interesting. Sounds sort of akin to Isabelle Huppert's performance in The Piano Teacher. She emotes very very little but you end up being able to read her face front the smallest of movements. Like a white sheet a paper, you could identify any sized mark on it.

If DDL is going for this kind of subtlety I would be extremely happy.

Phoenix was pretty low key in Vice compared to The Master and his performance as Doc is hands down one of my all-time favorites.

The Phantom trailer gives a slow-burn/low-key vibe, no outbursts like Hoffman shouting SHUT UP or Brolin barking moto panikaku or Day-Lewis' "there's a whole ocean of oil" snap, yet I still get chills each time I've played it. I still remember seeing the "One" teaser for Magnolia during a commercial break for the '99 MTV VMAs and in those 30-seconds I knew this movie would be like nothing I've ever seen. I'd just become addicted to watching Boogie Nights on VHS and couldn't believe that this writer/director's next movie would be what was shown in that little teaser. Practically every one of his trailers has had a similar effect, and this is no exception. Also as previously mentioned here, feels like a similar relationship to Dodd/Freddy only this time they actually make out and quite possibly fuck.

It's hard to tell so far. In the trailer, it definitely shows a story arc that could be main one in the film. When I think of what I see in the trailer and the look at the title, I imagine Phantom refers to the missing thread, the impossible one to get - a hallmark of someone's obsession in being perfect in their craft., this case making the perfect dress. DDL's character could also be trying to make the perfect girl through his dresses and failing. A story like that could go many routes and reach levels of intensity while still feeling subtle too. Should be interesting how it plays out.

Wow that's interesting. I don't know that I see that in the trailer, but I love the idea.

The idea comes from the hints of him trying to control her and she refusing to give in (even after she tells someone else he made her dreams come true and all she had to do was give him everything he desired). But he seems fascinated by her on first sight and it looks like it immediately leads to a muse relationship and he making dresses perfectly tailored for what idea he has of her.

The synopsis seems to tell that his work becomes difficult after he's met her.

a phantom thread isn't missing, it's imaginary. which doesn't contradict what's being said, but rather enforces it.

His name is Woodcock, so I can picture something regarding impotency

Or possibly background of DDL is presented in a very open-ended fashion in a very subtle, subdued film which would result in the possible polarized reactions
