Phantom Thread, about an eccentric couturier in the fifties, is already one of the best films of 2018. Not only because Paul Thomas Anderson (Inherent Vice, There Will Be Blood) in the director’s chair, even because the British topacteur Daniel Day-Lewis in it plays. The Brit can for his share in the film later his fourth Oscar for best male actor win.

Lewis announced earlier that he is after the Phantom Thread stops acting. In Knack Focus responds Anderson on the retirement of the man with whom he previously-There Will Be Blood was: “I have long not about wíllen think, but unfortunately, I believe him a little more every day.’

“I have áltijd sense, had to redo with Daniel working together, but in the beginning, there was no hurry. We were hoping that a good idea would arise and that we then have both hands free would have. But that good idea is not immediately apparent. We both have two movies filmed independently of each other. Then I heard the clock does tick.’

“I’m always the one that the bell pull. If you have Daniel doing it, of making films, not much in the house, because he has always something on our hands. That does not, that role of instigator is me.’
