FILM DIARY #27: There Will Be Blood (2007)

There Will Be Blood (2007)

Dir. Paul Thomas Anderson. Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Paul Dano, Dillon Freasier

“I have a competition in me,” Daniel Plainview (Day-Lewis) says. “I want no one else to succeed.” He’s speaking to his brother, Henry (who, it will turn it, is neither his brother nor a Henry), a man he’s only met earlier that day. 2,293 more words

This dark and somber film by Paul Thomas Anderson is a masterful exploration of capitalism, greed, and its effect on mankind.  Daniel Day-Lewis gives what could be one of the greatest performances of the decade, if not all-time.   918 more words
