Experience the Movies With Phantom Thread’s Reynolds Woodcock

Reynolds Woodcock, the obsessive, controlling fashion designer played by Daniel Day-Lewis in Phantom Thread, inhabits a beautiful, rarified world that does not smile on intrusions. And Paul Thomas Anderson’s movie has some of its most memorable moments when these intrusions involve very loud eating at Woodcock’s elegant breakfast table.

In this video, in honor of Phantom Thread’s doomed Oscar bid for Best Picture, we reimagined classic food scenes as they would have been seen through Woodcock’s angry eyes. Lady and the Tramp will never be the same.
