Phantom thread

Fits like a glove.

Daniel Day-Lewis says goodbye in style with his rendition of a tailor who falls for his muse in this subtle masterpiece from Paul Thomas Anderson about the breakfast as the ultimate relatietest. A film of great nuance.

Call me by your name

The echo of an increased heart rate.

A jongenshart buds in the Italian sunshine: Luca Guadagnino does wonders with the book of the same name by André Aciman. From the ancient sculptures of Praxiteles to the disco of The Psychedelic Furs and ‘Love my way’: ‘Call me by your name’ is an ode to life, love, and everything Italy has to offer. All the attention will go to the protagonists Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer, but look also to the nuanced interpretation of a klasbak in the shade as Michael Stuhlbarg, now also in ‘The post’ and ‘The shape of water’. He gives a monologue that is an Oscar in itself deserves.

The shape of water

The maid and the beast.

With thirteen nominations is ‘The shape of water’ the big favourite for the upcoming Oscars. And yet it is an excellent movie. ‘Full-on dare to go for the romance is a big risk,’ writes Steven De Foer, ” but if the mayonnaise takes, you can be a cinema again, old-fashioned along pack.’

The post

The press versus president.

Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks to save journalism: no wonder that they are there at ‘The Standard’ for fall, I hear you thinking. True, but if Spielberg does that, especially a good film, that can count as a prequel to ‘All the president’s men’.

I, Tonya

Smooth ice cream.

Sensational schaatsschandaal anno 1994: seven weeks to the Olympic Games, the American topschaatsster Nancy Kerrigan brutally outside of battle, beaten by a hired perpetrator. The police quickly looked in the direction of Kerrigans bitter rival Tonya Harding, a schaatskampioen with more hair on her teeth than Fellaini on his head. This film gives sans embarrassment her side of the story, with a superb Margot Robbie in the lead role.
