QuoteI do know that Paul and I laughed a lot before we made the movie. And then we stopped laughing because we were both overwhelmed by a sense of sadness. That took us by surprise: We didn't realize what we had given birth to. It was hard to live with. And still is.
QuotePaul and I spoke a lot about curses—the idea of a curse on a family, what that might be like. A kind of malady. And it's not that I felt there was a curse attached to this film, other than the responsibility of a creative life, which is both a curse and a blessing. You can never separate them until the day you die. It's the thing that feeds you and eats away at you; gives you life and is killing you at the same time.
QuoteAlthough there have been rumors that Day-Lewis is going to become a fashion designer, he laughed when I suggested that career. "Who knows?" he said mischievously. "I won't know which way to go for a while. But I'm not going to stay idle. I don't fear the stony silence." He has always had a variety of passions: He once wrote a comedy script with Rebecca; he paints well; he makes furniture; and he is a fan of MotoGP, the competitive motorcycle tournament. But he also has a deep love of film, and it is hard to imagine that he will not continue to contribute to movies in some way.
QuotePhantom Thread is one of the most beguiling portrayals of fashion in the history of film, but in the end, it's not a film about fashion.

There Will Be Blood is not about the oil industry. The Master is not about Scientology..."Back to Phantom Thread for a second. SPOILERI was just meditating when the following thought wafted by: The driving scenes in Phantom Thread had a very 40's/50's look about them. There's one especially driving down a dark lane with the shrubbery on either side illuminated rather awkwardly (so we can see the car). Very much reminded me of all of those rear-screen projections from the era of Rebecca, etc. I can only hope it was a deliberate attempt to invoke that period of film making. And have we discussed Reynolds' aggressive style of driving yet? I'm taking it as a 'release' for him. A way to (unconsciously?) blow off the contained, controlled environment of the House of Woodcock. Other thoughts?
