Irish Eye on Hollywood:
Daniel Day-Lewis Teams Up with Paul Thomas Anderson Again
Daniel Day-Lewis (In the Name of the Father, The Boxer) claims he is retiring, so the Christmas season movie he recently finished filming may be your last chance to see the Oscar winner in a darkened theater. Details are few and far between about the film, the title of which was only recently released.
What we do know about Phantom Thread that it is about a fashion designer in swinging 1950s London, and teams Day-Lewis up again with director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Inherent Vice).
Day-Lewis and Anderson previously worked together on the intense 2007 film There Will be Blood, which was inspired, in part, by an Upton Sinclair book about Ed Doheny, a ruthless tycoon whose father was an Irish immigrant.
There Will be Blood was also recently dubbed, in a recent New York Times survey, the best movie of the 21st century, thus far. ♦
