Milez Das’s review published on Letterboxd:
It has been a long time since I saw a Paul Thomas Anderson Film.
This is a masterpiece.
Greed,Money,Hatred,Salvation,Misery,Religion are the things were a man can deflect himself. Anderson shows how Daniel an oilman does everything in his power to become what he wants. He wants to be alone be away from all of this. He adopts the boy of a worker who dies in the mine. He uses him as a bait that he is a family man so that everyone can sell their land to him. In the midst of this he salvage himself and drags in his own pity.
Daniel Day Lewis. This man does one movie in every two three years. But when he does, he owns the film. Whatever character you give him, he defines it.
The music of this movie was essential factor as it sublimed the movie in a direction. The movie got darker and darker as it moved forward.
This is Anderson's best work as far I have only seen two films of his The Master which was just a master stroke and Punch Drunk Love which is one of my favourite.
If you have a milkshake,and I have a milkshake,and I have a straw, there it is.
That's the straw, you see?
Watch it. Now my straw reaches across the room and starts to drink your milkshake.
I drink your milkshake!,I drink it up!
The Brilliant last scene.
"I am finished"
