Phantom Thread Score

Only a few people have been able to see Phantom Thread in theaters since its limited release in December, but the Paul Thomas Anderson movie remains as tantalizing as ever. The release of its gorgeous, stirring soundtrack certainly helps.

The score by Jonny Greenwood, who has collaborated with Anderson three times before on There Will Be Blood, The Master, and Inherent Vice, is a work of art on par with the haute couture dresses that Daniel Day-Lewis‘ fashion designer crafts in the film, which he creates with the help of his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) and his muse, Alma (Vicky Krieps).

Not only will it have to maintain the momentum of its acclaimed first season, it will have to venture out beyond Margaret Atwood‘s masterful 1985 novel.

Showrunner Bruce Miller has near-complete creative freedom for The Handmaid’s Tale season 2, which just debuted its first look. The first images from season 2 hint at what will happen to Elisabeth Moss‘ June, and where her rebellious actions have left her fellow Handmaids.
