Vicky Krieps and Daniel Day-Lewis in Phantom Thead
Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film, Phantom Thead, is also supposedly Daniel Day-Lewis’s last one. He plays Reynolds Woodcock, a highly esteemed fashion designer who embarks on a tangled love affair with a young waitress (Vicky Krieps). It’s a fussy, minimalistic film — especially when compared to some of PTA’s more bombastic works of recent years — but just as intense in its own way. Watch the trailer here.
