    After 2 weeks of tests, I have returned! And how else to celebrate than watching a film about success?

    There Will Be Blood, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, tells the story of Daniel Plainview, an oilman during the days when oil was new and men still had moustaches. One day, a person named Paul Sunday comes to him and says that his property has oil. Daniel decides to take his son H.W. to the property and check it out. What…

    This film was directed and written by Paul Thomas Anderson. Starring Daniel-Day Lewis and when he makes a movie it's going to be good. The first 15 minutes there isn't any dialogue. This is when Daniel is starting to mine then turns to drilling oil. From here, there is a town that springs forth from the riches that come from drilling, on the cusp of the first oil boom.
    This film could be called "Liars," for the main characters, Daniel…

    With a simultaneously terrorizing and breathtaking cinematography, the best score that John Greenwood ever composed and ever will, and nihilistic performances by Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano, There Will Be Blood is PTA's masterpiece, and the best american movie of the last ten years, period.

    A perfect example of the turn of the century american mindset and hypocritical values.

    This was a very well made film, though not one I can say I loved. I thought perhaps the story lagged at times because I wasn't always sure what the point of it was. I'm still not quite certain about its flow.

    That being said, the end was fairly satisfying, and the score was tremendous. It raised so much tension, often when I wasn't even sure what I was supposed to be tense about. The screeching of strings that was akin to an orchestra tuning and the building of sound really added to the film.

    Daniel Day-Lewis was really quite exceptional in this.

    WONDROUS, wondrous movie.... It single-handedly restored my faith in American cinema. A masterpiece of movie-making on all accounts: Story, script, acting, photography, lightning, staging, location, casting, wardrobe, makeup... Nothing left to inertia or careless overlook. It is utterly beyond anything I have seen in, lets say, the past two decades. I am serious people. I am even considering reducing all my ratings (several hundred) by one star so this one deservingly stands-out.

    You see, there was a time, lets say…

    Whenever the movie No Country for Old Men is brought up, I immediately think of this There Will Be Blood, and since NCFOM is one of my favorite movies, I figured I had to watch this one as well. Boy am I glad that I did, this movie gripped me from beginning to end. Daniel Day-Lewis is incredible as the oil rich man who takes over a small town in California. An amazing story, told in an incredible way. A new favorite.

    Kind of like Inherent Vice, I need more time (and another viewing or two) to form a solid opinion, let alone write words about it.

    That being said... I TOLD YOU I WOULD EAT YOU

    Review In A Nutshell:

    I was both excited and anxious to see There Will Be Blood for the fourth time; it has been over year since my last viewing, and since then I have learned so much about cinema as a whole, and Paul Thomas Anderson specifically; I have grown in maturity and my tolerability for complex material and ability to dissect films closer to their purest essence, has…
