There Will Be Blood
Daniel Day-Lewis' Oscar-winning performance as a ruthless oil baron bestrides Paul Thomas Anderson's towering 21st-century classic.
Drama 2007 158 mins
Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
This relentlessly dark but fascinating character study earned Daniel Day-Lewis an Oscar for his portrayal of Daniel Plainview, a ruthless oil baron singularly obsessed with obtaining power, stature and wealth. Directed with brio and considerable craftsmanship, Paul Thomas Anderson’s fifth feature is considered one of the great cinematic achievements of the 21st century thus far.
Filled with glorious vistas and stunning tracking shots, There Will Be Blood is a masterclass in precision and invention. Spanning multiple decades, the film is overwhelming and intimate in equal measure with the character of Daniel Plainview emerging as one of cinema’s most compellingly conflicted monsters. Themes of religion, corruption, family and greed are all explored throughout but at the heart of the film is Day-Lewis’ monumental performance, assured to keep you glued to the screen.
