"In what could be his final film role, Daniel Day-Lewis is a perfect fit as a celebrated dress designer in Paul Thomas Anderson’s beautifully realised tale of 50s haute couture."
-Mark Kermode, The Guardian
"There is such pure delicious pleasure in this film, in its strangeness, its vehemence, its flourishes of absurdity, carried off with superb elegance."
-Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"Even though the tone here is impeccable as a Max Ophüls classic or high-period Bertolucci, you really have to go to something subversive like The War of the Roses to get a hint of the comic blackness."
-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"Daniel Day-Lewis retires in style with a thrillingly kinky fashion romance...Prickly, sly, entirely exquisite."
-Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"A challenging watch, but also jaw-dropping on more levels than it’s possible to count."
-David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Anderson crafts another classic of obsession and strange love, played by dynamite leads: Day-Lewis retires in style, Krieps is revelatory."
-Kevin Harley, Total Film
"Anderson’s divine, poetically scripted and unpredictable melodrama examines the impact of emotional upheaval on the fragile mind of a finely tuned creative."
-Emma Simmonds , Radio Times
"Paul Thomas Anderson does gothic romance in prestige Brit picture style, eliciting a worthy final performance from Daniel Day-Lewis that’s admirably matched by newcomer Vicky Krieps."
-Dan Jolin, Empire
