Awful and boring.

One of the most boring and on the whole, one of the most awfully written movies ever made, I am surprised how "Phantom Thread" is in the 2017's top 10 list of National Board of Review. It feels like a completely typical period piece that was done to death and felt like it was trying hard to get nominated for Oscars. In simple words, it is just "try hard" movie that was simply made for being nominated because it looks so different than other ones. Daniel Day-Lewis and Vicky Krieps have given a very good performance, can't take anything away from them. The characterization given to Day-Lewis was not bad, but at the same not something that we have not seen before. And, Krieps's character is obviously the polar opposite of what Day-Lewis's character is. The way they fall in love is done very abruptly. And, during that and after that, all the movie does is repetition. A whole lot of plotlines are simply showing their polarizing characters and just that. Then, we don't know why but Krieps poisons Day-Lewis kind of like to .... develop some romance, I guess. Then, after that plotline is over, we get the repetition ..... again! Then towards the end, he agrees to get poisoned because that's the only way he can be with her, because he is some sort of a terrible stubborn ..... I think. It doesn't sound so bad, but it's done quite horribly. During all the repetitions, a brief character development of Lesley Manville's character is there. Otherwise, until towards the end, at the point where I stopped caring about this movie, we get literally no character development whatsoever. It was the same thing in a slightly different situation. The storytelling is very very poor. The only merits are the performances of the lead actors, the production and costume design. Else, nothing is redeeming about this movie. I still have an opinion that "The Shape of Water" is the worst best picture ever. But it wasn't the worst nominee in that category. Guess which one was? Yup. "Phantom Thread". In short, it's a ridiculous period piece and a ridiculous romantic movie that doesn't even have the most generic romance. It gets an "E" and a "2.1/10".

I am one of a handful who can relate- but it's not love

I am the adult child of a father who lived for 25 years with a woman who had one illness after another. Each of these illnesses, from allergies to TMJ to back pain would resolve...and then another would present. My father spent two and a half decades being mother hen to her. I dare say that the more attention he gave, the more she rose to the occasion with a variety of medical issues. In the end, when he was diagnosed with dementia- she left him. She moved away for several years; she filed security alerts at her place of work and alleged that he was stalking her. She waited until the disease progressed far enough that he was willing to marry. Less than two years into the marriage she committed him to a locked, private pay nursing facility and had full financial control of his affairs. This brings me to the dynamic in Phantom. It's not love. It is some type of sick symbiotic relationship. Sometimes one party has the power and is a manipulator but on occasion the roles reverse. It was uncomfortable to watch Daniel Day Lewis's character be subjugated by Alma

Sensitively intimate insight into the delicacy of creative artistry

Although there certainly are objections to this film in various ways, its story and its slow motion above all, it is a breathtakingly beautiful film. It is a film about beauty, the delicacy of its handling, the arduousness of its creation and its unavoidable complications.

Daniel Day Lewis is a confirmed bachelor working as a tailor exclusively to the highest society, which has been his life's calling from the start. He finds a new model in a serving maid out in the country, none of them have seen each other before, so it's a fresh start for both, and they celebrate triumphs on their way together to begin with. The complications begin when she starts to take over his life and he objects. Questionable manoeuvres follow.

Still the film remains sustained until the end on a very high level of exquisiteness, and it's truly a cinematic work of art of the very highest rate. There aren't many films about tailors, most of them tell opposite stories, so this is in every aspect a unique film and very fitting as a crowning masterpiece on Daniel Day Lewis' career.
