Highly Suspect Reviews: Phantom Thread

Daniel Day-Lewis plays Reynolds Woodcock (titter), a famed dressmaking fashion king who puts silk on the backs of celebrities and royalty. When he meets a young girl named Alma (Vicky Krieps) he is taken with her, but is it more as a lover or as someone with the right frame to hang his dresses on? And how long will she, or anyone, put up with his eccentricities? Oh, the unmitigated tension. Paul Thomas Anderson directs Lewis here in what may be (if he’s serious this time) the actor’s last role. Chris, Lara, Jacob, and Ian review this movie in what may be (assuming they had as much fun as it seemed recording this) not even close to their last review for this website.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    The quote you’re thinking of Chris is between Laurence Olivier and Dustin Hoffman. As the story goes, Dustin Hoffman was deep into method acting for Marathon Man where he was depriving himself of sleep, letting the other actors actually abuse him like in the script and other extreme measures to get the right vibe for his performance. When he was talking to Olivier about it, Olivier told him something along the lines of “Why don’t you try acting?” It’s a great story. And it’s not meant to completely belittle method acting as a craft, but sometimes it can go too far.
