I noticed recently that if you search “TCM schedule” in Google, you get a nice visual preview of what’s on right now and what’s coming up. It’s much faster and more useful than using TCM’s own website (and it calculates start times for your time zone).

Great. Thanks, Matt.

Tonight a bit of brilliant programming. Noir Alley has Scarlet Street programmed starting at 12:15 AM, followed by La Chienne at 2:15 AM.

Another bit of clever programming: tomorrow night (Saturday) 8PM, The Phantom Thread (god, how I wish Criterion would release this) followed by Becker's Falbalas . All things dress makers.

Aside from wanting extras, why push for a Criterion edition of Phantom Thread? I adore the film too, but it's already out on both UHD and blu-ray in excellent editions

It's just me. As my favorite PTA, I prefer a shiny Criterion edition with all the bells and whistles

It was my favorite too actually until I revisited it recently for the fourth or fifth time and it no longer packed the same punch that destroyed me when I related way too much to the ethos of that relationship. Now I'm floating more in Licorice Pizza zone and it feels good. Phantom Thread is still an all-timer though, and the most brutally honest film about relationship dynamics amongst fear-driven individualists

Call me an old fart but I've lost interest in films featuring adolescent themes
Anyway, good for TCM that they are airing The Phantom Thread. It's definitely a classic in waiting.

Huh, the older I get the more I realize that those "adolescent themes" unlock a key to seeing more peripherally, beyond the limiting perspectives we funnel into as "adults" in a jaded, self-serious, and heavily-influenced milieu. It's ironic, like most of life, but I hope that as I age I find myself embracing more of those "adolescent themes." I think in many ways that's the key to leading a happier and fuller life. Though so is seeing the optimism of self-acceptance around the conditioning we can't entirely undo, as Phantom Thread suggests (yes, I think it's an incredibly optimistic film!)
