Hello and welcome to another new episode of the GenreCast! We're back this week in our finest clothes because we're taking a look at Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread. The 2017 drama about a designer and his muse landed several nominations and accolades—maybe none bigger than being chosen for our analysis table. This week, we're diving in to talk about power dynamics in relationships, auteurism, method acting, class dynamics, healthy relationships, and much more. Plus, we're kicking off a mini mystery marathon—only Arthur knows what links the next three films, so tune in now and start putting the clues together.
