Then my friend Judy and I headed over to the Pickford to see Phantom Thread, which has been nominated for several awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis. We left the theater a little confused by the story line, which is best understood by the rating difference between the critics and the audience on Rotten Tomatoes (92% for the critics and 70% for the audience). Apparently this is typical for the director, Paul Thomas Anderson, judging from the reviews I read. In any event, the movie is beautiful, and although the story line is a little... strange, it was the performances by Day-Lewis and Vicky Krieps that made the movie for me. If you saw it, please let me know what you think.
Only a few more movies before I'll have seen all the Oscar-nominated movies. I downloaded Mudbound on my iPad so I can watch it while I'm traveling. The day after tomorrow I'll be out of the incessant rain and in Florida!
