I was going to suggest Phase 1: single title card upfront, Phase 2: title card bookends, but PDL goes and fucks that right up.

I feel like Punch-Drunk Love is its own phase.

His biggest two shifts are from Magnolia to PDL, and then PDL to TWBB.

Magnolia->PDL is him loosening up and becoming improvisational, which is when his films became more distinctively his.

PDL->TWBB is him calming down, maturing, with his aesthetic becoming more distinctively formal, less 'fidgety' in his own words.

Right! PDL is the bridge movie; it's the the wind down/coda of Magnolia and the shift into slower "driftier" PTA.

Someone on the crew told me the signs are all made from repurposed face masks and nasal swabs.
"Trying to fit in since 2017."

I'm guessing all the signage doesnt necessarily mean more establishing shots in this one right?

knowing how much pta loves researching and making up things properly he would have everything set exactly as it was even if it's 100% out of frame

Thatís true, which makes the rare mistake in that regard stand out. Hopefully thereís no Rent-A-Center situation here haha.
