There Will Be Blood ★★★★½

And whaddya know? There was blood.
Daniel Day Lewis masterfully captures the spirit of a fractured man in this study on greed and family. It is incredible what emotions a handful of interactions can stir. Every moment in the film shared between Daniel and Eli is raw, engaging and emotive, without ever seeming overbearing. This work is a credit to PTA and DDL both, with the often overlooked Paul Dano deserving particular credit.
Get onto it.
