PHANTOM THREAD

So Jennifer Lawrence claims she only “got through about three minutes” of Phantom Thread. “I put in a good solid three. I’m sorry to anybody who loved that movie. I couldn’t give that kind of time. It was three minutes and I was just [oof]”.

This isn’t gossip, and it is no exaggeration as I actually heard her say this to Marc Maron in his WTF Podcast. I finally got to see Phantom Thread on the big screen last night and thinking about it today, as most people do when they see a film that moves and stays with them, I now feel compelled to respond to Ms Lawrence’s claims.

a) I got through all two hours and ten minutes of Phantom Thread, loving every word, performance, the costumes, the cinematography, the sublime music and yes that juicy plot line that no-one is talking about; and

b) I wish I’d turned “Mother!” off after three minutes. I’m sorry to anybody who loved that movie. I wasted my time. Yes if I’d been smart enough it would have been three minutes and I would have just been [oof].

Phantom Thread 2017, directed and written by Paul Thomas Anderson, starring Vicky Krieps, Daniel Day-Lewis and Lesley Manville.

LOVESICK: JUST DANCE – EARLY SUNDAY MORNING

“It’s a dreamlike place, especially late at night when it starts to empty out or first thing in the morning. Escalators and corridors go on forever. It feels like being on a giant cruise ship in the middle of Manhattan.”

An encounter between two strangers in an empty Manhattan movie theatre, a short film by New York-based director Yoonha Park, starring American Ballet Theatre principal dancers Isabella Boylston and James Whiteside.

Music by American singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens and choreography by Justin Peck.
