During the early oil discovery days, a Texas farmer discovers oil only to be swallowed by its greed. This movie started of silent and people getting oil out of the ground and the movie is set in different years of time which works in this movie not like other films. The acting is Fantastic and out of this world unspeakably brilliant and the cinematography is breathtaking.

PT Anderson directs a beast of a film, led by a tour-de-force chameleon performance by the great Daniel Day-Lewis. The film deals heavily with themes of religion, greed, and ambition and leaves a lot of its deepest questions up to the audience to interpret. The cinematography is stunning and a minimalist score by Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood completes the masterwork.

More than average entertainment.

Daniel Day-Lewis. He drinks your milkshake. Then wins an Oscar.

Paul Thomas Anderson proves yet again that he is one of the most talented filmmakers working today in this miracle of a movie, where the script, acting, music, direction, cinematography and structure all outweigh each other. I have nothing but applause and praise.
Every scene is basically even better than the last. PTA knows how to pace and piece together a drama to convey the full story.
Daniel Day-Lewis is… someone else. Compare this Daniel Day-Lewis with the one from My Left Foot or Lincoln. I swear, whenever he is on screen: MAGIC. A well-deserved and earned Oscar.
The long, close shots of people's expressions and of landscapes baffle me every time. The angles seem so elegant and never in the wrong frame.
But the c...

"There Will Be Blood" by Amanda

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and starring Daniel-Day Lewis this was my choice "Best Picture" winner at the Academy Awards and easily one of my favorite films of 2007.

Paul Thomas Anderson's style in this particular film has often been compared to Francois Truffaut, known for his unique character dramas, camera techniques, combined with an underlying message the viewer may not be ready for. It is a masterful combination that most films and flicks lack. Usually it is all flash and spectacle in Hollywood, a slow paced slow forming character drama, a political propaganda piece, etc.

Paul Thomas Anderson, in this rare instance, deserves to be compared to one of the founders of French New Wave because of his spectacular character study that celebrates classic cinema technique with m...

"There Will Be Blood" by Yojimbo

There Will Be Blood follows the rise of oil tycoon Daniel Plainview from his humble beginnings as a prospector working the land with his own two hands through to solitary mansion-bound multi-millionaire. I'm not surprised that this was adapted from a book published in 1927; it has a real old-fashioned feel to it and a palpable sense of authenticity. Therefore anyone used to the constant fast cuts, CGI, pop music soundtracks and wibbly wobbly camera work of modern cinema may find it tough going. It's a character study pure and simple, and Daniel Day Lewis is simply incredible. He is an ACTOR, not a movie star, and at no point to you become aware of the fact that he is just an actor acting; he genuinely brings Plainview to life. Unfortunately for those who like their films with a lovable he...
