* MINOR SPOILER *

Sounds like we're in for a doozy of a polarizing ending  :bravo: Wonder if anyone here can spill the beans of what it entails

They are basically talking about what to expect from the ending, so don't watch it.

Let's avoid talking spoilers here and have a separate thread for spoiler discussions like usual.

He said Phantom Blood.
Phantom Thread confirmed fake title.
Or surprise PTA x JJBA crossover incoming.

. Hope he does a couple of Marc Maron style 2 hour interviews for this movie.

I was (re-)listening to that episode a couple of weeks ago, and I had this exact thought--specifically the "Marc Maron-style" aspect.  I'm also feeling like I want to listen to his "Boogie Nights" commentary track again...

I'll gladly read and listen to everything he says, but he's the king at saying nothing of substance about his work. Which is a talent. He's playing the innocence card.

I must add that I am not waiting for a filmmaker  to say anything substantive about the work he's doing—because what's the point, if it works, if it's in the movie, then there is no need to say anything. In this one, he's at Cannes—obviously high—speaking to french TV, he's pleased because they liked the movie and says some interesting things about the process. But I remember how good he was at bullshiting when he was promoting The Master.

I'm curious to see if he will be asked why his last two original scripts are about some kind of twisted relationship between two "lovers". He'll probably respond: "Oh, now that you talk about it, I see how it looks that way!".

He started it around the PDL era, but really mastered it around the release of CMBB. In the Charlie Rose interview with him and DDL they just keep looking at each other and giggling and not giving him anything, its awesome.

His first three films he couldn't shut up about, especially Boogie Nights and Magnolia. I wonder if he just got sick of hearing himself talk, or tapped into the idea that people would respect him and the work more if he started playing the role of mysterious genius instead of hyperactive film nerd (which QT was already the king of).

There's something to Plainview's line about not wanting to explain himself that feels personal, it definitely coincided with his interview and filmmaking style becoming more and more elliptical.

I think we have another marquee moment for the site.

Pure non-spoiler highlights:


"The film, quite simply, is not done."

"I know how to point the camera in a good direction, and I know a few things. But I’m not a director of photography."

"Then the process of writing it was really the two of us together, quite honestly. I’d give him things as I was writing. Rather than go away and write a script and try to impress him, I was collaborating with him each step of the way as I was going, which was very helpful in terms of forming the story and the character."
