A classic movie.....Yes "Classic" is the perfect word.....
Another masterpiece from the combination of Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis and reminded me about their last one " There will be blood ". But my opinion is this movie is even better than the first one .And i think most of us will admit this.
Why it is a classic?
I am referring it to a Classic as this movie has every answer to all of the critics. The plot is centered around a renowned dressmaker of Fashion era of 1950 in London.The movie has successfully shown the fashion types and patterns of London in 1950. It has all the classical designs of high society and it is very much amusing to see those in 2017.
Next the entry of a perfect quetie in the form of Vicky crieps. She has filmed the role of a glamorous women with all glows perfectly.Her dressing, impressions, expressions and activities around her own beauty is so eye soothing that it has added an extra flavour.
Now the main part of the movie which is an unequal affair between the dressmaker and the young lady. Their strong will, intense romance, breathless moments of pure expression all set in the fashion era of 1950 is very much mindblowing. The rest of the film is a real set piece to enjoy.
Daniel Day-Lewis is as excellent as ever in the central role. Direction is always perfect when Paul Thomas Anderson has responsibility of performing it.
When we say classic it reminds us "Godfather" or may be "The Shawshank Redemption" and so on. But you have to add this movie to that list surely.May be a fourth Oscer is coming for Daniel Day- Lewis....You never know....May be....
