Tough Love – Phantom Thread

Tough Love – Phantom Thread

SPOILERS

If ever there was a film that was aesthetically beautiful and sophisticated, this would be the one. The story deals with a dressmaker in the early 1900’s, and has an absolute air of romanticism through its imagery and music.

But ladies and gents, in no way does the content reflect the overall mise-en-scene (look) of the film!

You might think at first, that it is about a selfish, work-obsessed man that drives all who loves him away; but don’t worry because this film is proof that women always get their way!
Never in all my days was I ready for the twist in the story and the manipulative lengths that Vicky Krieps’ character Alma would go to, for the slightest bit of attention.

That said, the film takes forever to get to the point and when the twist finally takes place it takes another 10 minutes for the motivation of her actions to make any sense.

Now if you’ve read all of my reviews up to this point it might seem as though I just want all films to get to the point as quickly as possible, but this is not the case. I’m only confused about why the films of this season all feel the need to build “tension” for over an hour? Surely there are more creative ways to get the point across while still maintaining the interest of audiences.

This one gets a 6.5/10 from me.
