I think using the same pun as the Coen brothers is pretty lame. I just think of the Soggy Bottom boys.

Mark Kermode’s favourite movie soundtracks of all time

Quote
This ability for music to capture the atmosphere of a time and place in cinema was a factor that he eulogised once again in There Will Be Blood. For the Paul Thomas Anderson story of oilmen clashing and cultist religions, he declared: “I remember watching the film and about 20-30 minutes in thinking, ‘I’m not distinguishing between the sound effects and the music.’ It all sounded like all the sound was coming out of the landscape, that is the highest compliment.”

For There Will Be Blood, Johnny Greenwood, who scored the film, even declared that Anderson “even cut some of the film to the music which is so the wrong way round.” The result is a hand in glove marriage of sound and vision that Kermode found enthralling and perfectly simpatico in equal measure.

I feel like "Soggy Bottom" is meant to refer to some sort of hangout spot or some other kind of fictional place that the main character and his friends frequent regularly. That's my prediction on the meaning of that title. Sort of like "Moonrise Kingdom" or "St. Elmo's Fire".

I remember when we all thought "Phantom Thread" was super dumb. That grew on me.

I was pro Phantom Thread from the beginning. As for Soggy Bottom, I have a feeling it’ll stick (with some *evidence* encouraging my feeling) and I’m here for it.

that's such a funny meme of course. kind of wasted in this context, since all the reactions about expecting both are true to Verhoeven's form. the candy is beneath the cast! he wrote a book about Jesus and I went to hear him speak about it. he called Jesus a talented exorcist

Dudes, trust me, "Soggy Bottom" will make sense in the context of the film--just as "Phantom Thread" did to that movie.

I have a couple of theories on what it could refer to--and there's one in particular that just makes me smile.  Fingers-crossed I'm correct.

Care to elaborate  pal
