The writer-director is revered for his grand stage meditations on the American man ("Boogie Nights," "There Will Be Blood," "The Master"), but here – perhaps to the dismay of some fans – he both narrows and redirects his gaze to a single couture house in 1950s London and the very particular man behind the designs, Reynolds Woodcock.In what may be his final film performance, Daniel Day-Lewis plays Reynolds as a soft-spoken dandy whose precise rules and polished look thinly veil his volatile temperament.Ultimately, it seems, Alma is testing the waters in hopes of carving out her own unique relationship with Reynolds."Phantom Thread" is beautiful and intriguing, but it's also a film that is not unlike its central character – easy to respect and admire, and nearly impossible to fully love.
