On this episode of The First Run, it’s the end of January so of course it’s our big Best Of 2017 Spectacular! Chris and Matt also discuss Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Phantom Thread’, supposedly Daniel Day Lewis’ final film. Lewis stars a Reynolds Woodcock, a fashion designer in 50’s London. He’s the tortured artist type that finds his muse and all the drama and heartbreak that brings. Then it’s on to ‘Princess Cyd’. Chris was immediately taken with the film. Will Matt agree? There’s the review of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight To DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Then the show wraps with Matt & Chris sharing their 10 Best (or is it favorite?) Films of 2017. Pack a lunch and stay the day. It’s a super-sized episode of The First Run.
