Description
Director Paul Thomas Anderson's THERE WILL BE BLOOD is a masterly, unflinching examination of a consummately evil man. Daniel Plainview (via a transcendent performance by the great Daniel Day-Lewis) is, as he likes to remind those around him, an oil man: he finds it, he drills for it, and he makes money from it. Following a tip from a visitor named Paul Sunday, whose family sits atop a veritable ocean of oil, Plainview travels to the town of New Boston, California, with his young son. Sunday's preacher brother Eli (both roles are played by the excellent Paul Dano) grudgingly accepts Plainview's ambitions under the condition that he help fund the town church. As Plainview's plans come to fruition, a series of events begin to fracture the insular world he has constructed for himself, pitting Plainview against Sunday and forcing him to become even more vindictive and ruthless.
Anderson proved with BOOGIE NIGHTS and MAGNOLIA that he was adept at handling expansive storylines and layered plots; however, he stakes out a claim here as a new master of the cinematic epic. The film is visually stunning, and alternates between lush widescreen shots of the desert and meticulously composed, darkly lit close-up of his actors, presenting complex images of the American landscape and the souls that dot it. As a narrative, THERE WILL BE BLOOD is told with a sense of economy, yet never at the expense of the film's inherently grand scope. It's difficult to determine precisely what Anderson wants his viewers to take from the experience: the film is, in the end, appropriately complex and ambiguous. THERE WILL BE BLOOD forces us to confront Plainville, who seems to be a larger-than-life personification of evil; that we don't entirely understand him at the film's conclusion is not a shortcoming, but rather a tribute to the depths of this most vile creature and this most brilliant film.

There will be blood

Created: 09/08/08
I bought this DVD for my partner as a present. We`ve both never seen it or many of the trailers. It wasn`t what we expected. We thought a western style with gunfighting the usual....It was all about digging for oil and the dangers that accoured back then. Also the main character who bought land where oil was found and dug became a very wealthy an drunken man in the process who brought up a child that wasn`t his own.

Very long film (about 2 an 1/2 hours) but very well worth it. For a film that we we`re unsure about, turned out to be quite surprisingly good.
I would definately recommend to people who like good story lines an a bit of blood.

"There Will Be Blood" - Phil's review.

Created: 02/09/08
It must be hell being Daniel Day Lewis, all the parts he gets offered are so intense! I found "There Will Be Blood" confusing at the start, because little is explained: I couldn't even describe Plainview (his character) as a traditional "baddie", he just does bad things - by the end of the film I felt like a "gawker" at a car crash site, knowing that I shouldn't look but being unable to resist.

Created: 25/01/09
BEING A BIG FAN OF DANIEL DAY LEWIS, I COULD NOT MISS THIS AWARD WINNING FILM, AND TRUE TO ALL MY EXPECTATIONS, IT WAS FANTASTIC. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS MOVIE, JUST FOR HIS PERFORMANCE ALONE. THE WHOLE FILM IS GRIPPING AND WILL NOT DISSAPOINT.

Daniel Day Lewis is brilliant..

Created: 24/03/11
This film should be boring but it's not.

A mixture of the feeling Daniel Day Lewis gives you and the greatness of the soundtrack (johnny greenwood - radiohead) really makes it what it is, and that is brilliant.
