April 04, 2020
‘PHANTOM Thread’ got several 2018 Oscar nominations, including best picture, best director, best actor, best screenplay and best supporting actress. It’s written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, who also got nominated in the Oscars for “Boogie Nights”, “Magnolia”, “There Will Be Blood” and “Inherent Voice”, but has never won. “Phantom Thread” is an arthouse film that focuses more on characters and their interaction and not really narrative driven.
