Quote from: modage on December 14, 2017, 11:04:00 AMHe's totally kidding. And I can't remember anything specifically about cross fades except maybe in a couple instances.

QuoteOpposite Daniel Day-Lewis as Reynolds Woodcock, Vicky Krieps's Alma emerges as the perfect figure for Woodcock's purposes (and designs)—embodying the freshness of youth, while stolid enough to withstand his frenzies. Intriguingly, and for the first time in Anderson's career, the woman becomes the real protagonist.

QuotePhantom Thread, which pushes the narrative that geniuses are on some level allowed to be abusive. If your work is beautiful enough, your soul can be made of scabs and darkness. The world excuses so much if you're talented and male.

Quote from: Glenn KennyBut this is not a film that has a conventional climax; the war of wills between the two characters does not have a tidy resolution. We don't even know just what it is that Alma wants, let alone what she gets. Her background is shrouded. Beautifully portrayed by Vicky Krieps, she speaks with a slight German accent. There's a scene set at a press conference, where a vulgar dowager for whom Woodcock has made a wedding dress is discussing her impending wedding to a Dominican politician. A journalist asks the man about whether he "sold visas to Jews during the war" and Anderson cuts to a close-up of Alma, her face neutral. This is a movie of confrontations, of dreamlike moments dissolving into micro nightmares, but it is hardly a conventional "battle of the sexes" story.
QuoteHer focus always returns to the work and its effect on her — even if some of it was left on the cutting-room floor. "It's not in the movie anymore, but there's a scene that was very strong where Alma goes and wanders off on her own in the country house and finds the wedding dress of their mother," she said. "She takes it out and actually tries it on; she's discovered by Cyril [Manville]. And that was a scene that was just unlike anything I've ever done — it was like there was a ghost in the room the whole time. It really was."
