Phantom Thread

How disappointing

(Edit) 01/12/2018

I wanted to watch this as Daniel Day Lewis is one of the world's greatest actors and so I assumed it would be an interesting film.

However, I don't know why he chose to take the role. It is nothing compared to his past films, an absolutely pointless plot. Not even sumptuous by Hollywood standards, like a low budget British austerity B movie. Immediately forgettable.

Love and Mercy

Two lead actors decision doesn't work for me

(Edit) 07/10/2018

Bit of a slick film about an important influence on pop music. As ever, Paul Dano is great, the best person to have been chosen to play this role. Who on earth decided to cast John Cusack as the older version and then split up scenes and chronology of events? is beyond me. It doesn't work. Why couldn't Dano have played the older Brian?

Disappointed by this film, which had some potentially great elements; Brian Wilson's life story, the music and a good lead role (Dano) and then couldn't really pull it off.
