Unsure between TWBB and Inherent Vice (both are on the low end of limegreen). Based on the above, what should I see next ?

Punch-Drunk Love, given your approval of Phantom Thread. It's got the same focus on a relationship that probably shouldn't work and features characters that at a little off (plus another powerful score).
Check out my blog of many topics

Im not a quitter, Kimmy! I watched Interstellar all the way to the end!

I am at a loss as to how to rank Phantom Thread. I hope I will be able to rewatch it next week. Not rewatching The Master and Inherent Vice when they were playing were among the stupidest decisions I ever made. Not to mention being an idiot teenager who didn't even know what a PTA was when TWWB was playing.

Phantom Thread  (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2017)

This film reminded me of an accidental jam session, like if a bunch of music students were doing practice exercises and you walked by at just the right moment when the various sound commingled into a pleasing whole. Everyone is just riffing independently here: Jonny Greenwood with his score, Anderson with his direction and his cinematography, Day-Lewis with his performance, Mark Tildesley with his production design, and Mark Bridges with his costume design. The movie just provides a framework for these individual artists to showcase their skills, like students at a talent show. Top prize goes Lesley Manville, who just owns the screen with her Agnes Moorehead-inspired performance. Alas, like most musical exercises, the ending is a disappointment, like a cat jumping on the piano keys reminding us of the disposability of it all.

Grade: B

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
