    There Will Be Blood worries me because it's the kind of movie that shouts its ambitions from the mountaintop. You sense that Anderson went out to make the great movie of the age, maybe The Great American Movie, one which attempts to sum up all the contradictions and nuttiness of American history. What makes the movie great, maybe as great as it wants to be, is how untidy the results turned out to be. Anderson stitches the movie together from…

    Epic in scope and grandiose in volume, There Will Be Blood is first-rate, plain and simple.

    The last scene of this movie is one the best scenes in film history, in my opinion. Daniel Day-Lewis is a brilliant actor.

    Incredible performance by Day-Lewis. Paul Dano tries to keep up with him to the best of his ability but Day-Lewis is such a tour de force that it's virtually impossible. Gorgeous set pieces, haunting music, and a deep, memorable story make this movie Paul Thomas Anderson's best work I've seen.

    Still too overtly histrionic for my tastes. (w/live orchestra)

    I didn't think it could be possible to improve upon a stone cold masterpiece like There Will Be Blood but apparently a live performance of the score will do the trick. The film was projected directly above a 50 piece orchestra that included Johnny Greenwood sitting in on the Ondes Martenot while a conductor bravely led them through semitone quavers and those rollicking, time signature changing pizzicato pieces. Even with light from music stands flooding onto the bottom corner of…

    Shown on a 50 ft. screen with Johnny Greenwood and a full orchestra performing the score live. Rad.

    Una de las cinco mejores películas de la década pasada. Una historia sobre la familia, la avaricia y la religión. La trama transcurre en Texas, a principios del siglo XX. Un magnate del petróleo en su intento por adueñarse de un yacimiento, tiene que enfrentarse al joven predicador Eli Sunday. Daniel day Lewis lo dió todo en este papel que considero el mejor de su carrera.
