Doesn't really earn its push into psychodramatic territory at the midpoint.

Phantom Thread is simply decadent. Delicious in every way.

Anderson has trouble coaxing this struggle to any sort of emotional climax; its fanciful, symbolic ending is the sort critics will praise for its careful ambiguity even as they overlook its narrative desperation.
February 21, 2020
Like Spielberg or Tarantino, Anderson intuitively understands the language of film. He's made a movie that's not only beautiful, but tactile.

What Phantom Thread is, in the end, is a strange combination of romantic thriller and masterful character study of creatives, obsessives, and the worlds they build.

Perhaps Phantom Thread is best understood as the director coming to grips with his own genius brain.

Infectiously interested in the gratuitous and quirky beauty of the world.

What caught me most off guard is that Phantom Thread, more than any other of [Paul Thomas] Anderson's other movies, is incredibly funny.
July 30, 2019
An elegant, fascinating and twisted film that keeps you trapped at all times with its unique romance. [Full Review in Spanish]

An almost dreamlike tone that increases the feeling of being inside a beautiful story of dark borders. [Full Review in Spanish]

...a testament both to the brilliant performances at its core, from Day-Lewis in his final bow and Krieps in a breakout role, and to Anderson's continued growth as one of our greatest filmmakers.

Daniel Day-Lewis delivers a performance worthy of bidding goodbye to his film career.

Just an old-fashioned love song.

It's Workaholism: The Movie. With Phantom Thread, Anderson has made, unequivocally, the best film about workaholism of all time.

So instead of asking, "Is Phantom Thread good?" (of course it's good, you fool), the question is, "Is the film a fitting exit for one of the greatest actors of our time?"
June 3, 2019
An enthralling and deeply pleasurable treatise on sexual politics that is both richly thematic and beautifully realized.
May 21, 2019
It manages to be one of the funniest films I've seen all year, not in spite of but because of the way it remains unwilling to soften the edges or the nastiness of any of its charactrers.
April 26, 2019
Phantom Thread is an engrossing and enjoyable drama, a visually beautiful blend of taut drama and seductive romance heightened by the performances of a stellar cast.
April 5, 2019
Tailoring shears would've come in handy to snip, snip the pregnant pauses.
March 19, 2019
Jonny Greenwood's score deserves special mention, its piano and strings perfectly pitched to the exquisite cinematography.
