    “I’m an oil man.”

    There Will Be Blood is a masterfully created drama from visionary writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson. While this is only the third film of his I’ve seen (the other two being Punch-Drunk Love and The Master) he is shaping up to be one of my favorite directors ever.

    The film is a portrait of man’s greed and manipulation, and nobody could play Daniel Plainview better than Daniel Day Lewis. His performance is captivating, powerful, insightful, and evil.…

    Ambitious, mesmerizing, and above all, brilliant. There Will Be Blood presents a towering character study and close examination of the beginnings of 20th century capitalist America. As usual, Daniel Day Lewis churns out a world-class performance. He owns every second that he is on the screen.

    After a third viewing I can finally see why this film gets so much praise. Knowing the full arc of the story beforehand makes it much easier to observe the other elements that make this movie work so well. The soundtrack and cinematography stood out very prominently this time. Jonny Greenwood kills it as a composer. Every scene has twice as much tension because of him. It's great to see a film where every scene feels essential to the storytelling. Is it safe to say this is one of the greatest films ever made? If not, it's gotta be close.

    It is rare that a film can be so throughly dominated by a single central performance, and still have something left to give the viewer in terms of story and themes. Yet Paul Thomas Anderson's towering masterpiece, There Will Be Blood, is just such a film, a meditation (some would more eloquently describe as a vicious condemnation) of humanity's drive to competition, in all facets of life, be it faith, family and above all else, business.

    Daniel Plainview, brought to…

    Daniel. Day. Lewis. That is all. Why didn't I watch this sooner? DDL's character is both moving and frightening.

    Many people consider this the magnum opus of P.T.A. Many others call it the greatest film of the 2000's. Has it stood the test of time? Are they right? Well, lets face it, P.T.A. is one of the most incredible directors of the last 50 years, in my opinion. Considering most of his early films were overlooked, I'm content with how much respect this one has. Because, simply put, it's a masterpiece. An american epic. The greatest one since Citizen…

    Film #26 in Scavenger Hunt #3
    Item 28. A film featuring an Anti Hero!
    letterboxd.com/meghammy/list/scavenger-hunt-3/

    What a great film! Paul Thomas Anderson delivers a great anti hero from the early 1900s, seeking oil and dealing with some very serious anger issues. Daniel Day Lewis' performance as Daniel Plainview, a self-taught, self-assured oil tycoon is outstanding, as his always are. Paul Dano's performances as Paul and Eli Sunday are nearly as good. The relationships we see Daniel enter, get frustrated with, and ultimately leave are developed and whole. The score for the film is jarring at times but perfectly fitting. A must-watch film for everyone!

    Sweat and tears, blood and toil. I remember how I had to work for my first dollar. I mowed my neighbor's lawn, who had just about the biggest backyard in my memory. I pushed that 60 pound hunk of metal back and forth across the lawn several times for what seemed like forever, but it was worth it. My first dollar was earned through sweat and tears, blood and toil. And that's where I feel Daniel Plainview lied when he…
