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.
