Phantom Thread at the Egyptian

The final piece of the awards season puzzle finally opens in Seattle this week, exclusively at the Egyptian. Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest is a departure from his recent sprawling epics of American history and psychosis (There Will be Blood, The Master, Inherent Vice) and a return to the oddball romance of Punch-Drunk Love, albeit in disguise as a tasteful costume drama. Literally, in this case, as Daniel Day-Lewis plays a mid-century British fashion designer with a fastidiously controlled life (monitored by his watchful sister (Lesley Manville) who falls for a young waitress (Vicky Krieps) and whisks her away to his life of luxury. Recalling both the Rebecca-style romances of the 1940s and moodier films like Peter Strickland’s The Duke of Burgundy, it also, for reasons I can’t quite articulate, reminded me of Erich von Stroheim. It’s resolutely pro-breakfast food message is I believe something we can all get behind in these troubled times.
