THERE WILL BE BLOOD

There Will Be Blood is startling, original, and unforgettable.

Daniel Day-Lewis plays Daniel Plainview, the most intense and physically challenging performance (that should win him an Oscar in this spellbinding, powerful, insane film).

If you have an interest in an all-American tale about the oil industry in the beginning years, and a madman that tries to conquer it all by himself, you should see this film.

Daniel Day-Lewis gives a passionate performance in this diverse character study by director Paul Thomas Anderson.

It's a lustful tale at the turn of the last century, when a soft-spoken opportunist finds himself at odds with religious fanaticism.

It's a deeply powerful, well-made movie with outstanding performances.

The movie has a story line that crosses more than 30 years and offers a look into the early era of the oil business in California.

The director's main interest is how developing events shape the star's life view.

The film covers the worst about capitalism, and about fathers and sons.

It's a real character study of greed, manipulation, and insanity.
