Daniel Plainview, drinking brown liquor from a gold-rimmed glass, sitting in his study wearing a foulard tie with a denim shirt and heavy cardigan and hard bottom shoes, five o’clock shadow growing into a mustachioed face, screaming at his child and then passing out in his private bowling alley. It me.
I gave this another shot after being totally unmoved by it out of Sundance. Three weeks ago my wife and I welcomed a beautiful baby girl into our life and so I am now legally and emotionally required to be moved to tears by coming of age stories in which a father truly sees and comes to understand his daughter. I don’t make the rules. Wonderful movie.
