Wish I had read the comments before I wasted a couple of hours. Boring.

This is a Really strange movie. Very strange love relationship. Kinda of a boring movie. But it got me through a boring Sunday afternoon.

The characters in Paul Thomas Anderson's movies are usually not very sympathetic. The characters in this movie are no exception. The sad part is the plot was weak.

A slow and in a way sick movie. If you marry a mentally ill person, well you may not end up very well (or at least on a sick bed).
Certainly not a strong role of DDLewis. Thought his exit from the movie scene would be more dazzling.
Expected more from the movie, but successfully finished it.

Eccentric wealthy old man meets needy empty-headed young woman who sells her soul.

I love the way this woman manipulated this man into submission. Just use mushrooms?

A review says "devilishly funny and luxuriantly sensuous" I missed that part. Other than that this movie is LONG.

An entertaining piece. Always a pleasure to watch Mr. Daniel Day-Lewis. As others have stated, the clothes are the best.

Strange, very strange but the clothes were worth seeing.

If you want to waste two hours of your life, watch this movie. Do I need to say more.

Many interesting quotes from the film have been posted in IMDb ... thanks to the contributors. However, the film left out some good stuff from the extras that are as memorable:

From a deleted scene:

I never really like myself. I thought my shoulders were too wide. My neck was skinny like a girl. And I have no breasts. Except my hips are large than needed. My arms strong. But in his work, I became perfect. I feel just right. May be that’s how all women feel in his clothes.

Special features: House of Woodcock fashion show narrated by Adam Buxton (fabrics, colors and silhouettes):

Let’s join the stars and celebrities and London’s top genetic specimens. The occasion? A mannequin parade and spring fashion at the House of Woodcock.
Our first model Elizabeth wears a dinner dress with a fitted bodice of black velvet and a full skirt of silk veil, accented with emerald beading and jet buttons.
Alma wears a claret-colored hostess ensemble with a wool jersey blouse and a matching silk veil skirt trimmed with Alençon lace.

Ingrid wears a renaissance inspired suit of slate blue wool serge. The tailored jacket featuring unique shoulder details is trimmed with charcoal gray plassementerie, and is paired with a romantic full skirt, the unique touch of a Cavaliers Cape lined in crimson silk, custom feathered hat and Cavalier-style embroidered kid leather gloves completes the look.
Ellie wears a daytime ensemble of moss green iridescent wool with a full-length coat and pencil-slim skirt, paired with a vibrant floral silk lining and matching print silk blouse. The outfit is finished with a matching green hat in a fine straw, an exclusive house of Woodcock sting-gray design.
Make way for Bonnie, she wears an evening gown of emerald green silk taffeta. The skirt held away from the hips with inverted tucks. The wonderful bodice is of black ribbon lace with a décolletage for displaying one’s favorite jewels.

Ellie wears a spring suit in a soft fog-colored wool in a subtle plaid, paired with a built-in waistcoat of straw colored lightweight herringbone wool. The lines of the cleverly cut jacket continue into the lines of the pencil-slim skirt.
And now it’s the turn of Alma who wears a renaissance inspired gala gown with matching evening cape rendered in smoked colored silk velvet with golden Hurd taffeta skirt and cape lining. The bodice' s front slashing details is set off with strings of graduated sead pearls and crystal accents.
Ingrid wears a dinner ensemble suitable for casual dinners with friends or first nights out on a tropical cruise. A romantic silk organza blouse and silk taffeta skirt, both in soft azure blue, are contrasted with black wool jersey bodice, shawl, belt and handbag. The result was an inevitable loveliness from the House of Woodcock.
