Daniel Day-Lewis delivers another great performance as a narcissistic and work-obsessed dressmaker in presumably his swan song role. "Phantom Thread" moves at a very slow pace, often lulling into complacency and unnecessary territory. The acting is phenomenal, cinematography is great, and the costume designs are beautiful, but these things do not fully save a film that runs well past it's proper runtime. The story is a romance tale that hits some notes well, while missing others. The story lacks depth. It would have been pleasant to see more romance building scenes. It takes a while before any type of love can be felt between the characters, with some more acute writing this film could have been more potent. With that being said, it is a very good character study by director/writer Paul Thomas Anderson. Day-Lewis' character is complex and obsessive, yet there is something very relatable with his character that makes him interesting to watch. Day-Lewis' performance is really great, as are most of his performances. It doesn't feel like you are watching an actor play a role rather you are watching an actor be the role. The same can be said of Lesley Manville's character who stars opposite Day-Lewis. The torment she goes through in showing her affection is compelling and well-written. The use of colors in this film is subtle yet phenomenal. The dresses and costumes all look great and is easy too see why this won an Oscar for Best Costume Design. It is a well-crafted piece and is worth seeing once for Daniel Day-Lewis fans. Overall, I give this film a 7.5/10.
