    This movie is absolutely amazing. Every shot is impeccable and Paul Thomas Anderson's direction is nothing short of genius. This is one of my absolute favorite movies of all time. Daniel Day Lewis' and Paul Dano's performances are absolutely great. The final scene is the greatest way to end a movie. Masterpiece.

    Even though I completely missed the twin brother thing, this movie is awesome - characters, landscapes, period - all bundled together by clashing, anxiety-infused music (which I'm sure will put off a lot of the audience). Great 70s styled movie-making centered on a brilliant performance (hey DeNiro, Pacino - remember when acting was done like this?) And it's not even too Robert Altmany - perhaps because Anderson is tackling a subject bigger than his own cinematic cleverness can handle. I'll…

    Damals im Kino gesehen und nun nochmals daheim auf Blure-Ray. Immer noch eine Wucht, Paul Thomas Anderson <3

    During the early oil discovery days, a Texas farmer discovers oil only to be swallowed by its greed. This movie started of silent and people getting oil out of the ground and the movie is set in different years of time which works in this movie not like other films. The acting is Fantastic and out of this world unspeakably brilliant and the cinematography is breathtaking.

    There Will Be Blood is a film that benefits from repeated viewings, as the immediate, arresting frenzy of the piece is dulled slightly on a second viewing and allows one to see a film that risks collapsing under its own weight. Like the oil it follows, it is easy to imagine a small mishap, a stray spark, completely undoing this film, and although no such mistake occurs, it does leave the film feeling oppressively dangerous and inhuman. It is this…

    My original, opening-day review of this film is at Looking Closer.

    So are some responses to critics who resorted to name-calling and wild accusations when my Christianity Today colleagues and I posted our admiration for this film.

    Excerpts from the review:

    There’s a biblical simplicity to these events, as brother turns against brother, father betrays son, and son strikes back at father. Eventually, Plainview’s guilt about his crimes against a brother and a son leads to something other than repentance.…

    I haven't reviewed this film up until now because it's just so hard to find the right words for it. Hopefully I can come up with something.

    I really wish I had seen this film in theatres. If only I was as in to great films in 2007 as I am today. Because this is a spectacle.
    There Will be Blood is truly excellent, in every way. I think there is only a handful of films every decade that can…

    It may not be my favorite film, but I cannot deny this is a masterpiece. Even I can overlook the few faults I have with it and see that it is one the greatest visions in all of cinema. There is very little left to say on this film; it is amazing.

    This is perhaps the fourth or fifth time I have watched There Will Be Blood. Here is a film where each new rewatch shows more and and reveals more of what is so great about it.

    If I had to pick the best film from 2000 until now, there would be only one choice. While a decade is a very long time, and many great films were made during these 14 years, I believe There Will Be Blood is the…
