Phantom Thread (2017)

I was honestly nervous about this one. It’s supposedly going to be Daniel Day-Lewis’ final film and I’d heard mixed reviews before checking it out. It’s also a movie about the stuffiest of dressmakers which is paced very… precisely. However, thanks mostly to a few incredible performances, it held my interest long enough to get to the moments that set this movie apart. There are some serious spoilers for those moments though so watch the movie, then come back and give our podcast a listen if you’re so inclined.

The Boxer (1997)

I didn’t know much about “The Troubles” in Ireland going into this movie and, to be honest, I don’t feel like I know any more coming out of it. History lessons aside, The Boxer includes some excellent performances from the entire cast in a movie that is more of a meditation on borrowed resentment than a traditional boxing story.
