There Will Be Blood ★★★★★

Of all the films my eyes have witnessed (it's approaching 3,000), this one may very well come closest to perfect in meeting my own personal criteria and biases. It encompasses everything I find aesthetically pleasing in every discernable quality. There isn't a wasted frame, a wasted performance, a wasted background face, set design, musical cue, edit, etc. It has it all, but most importantly, it tells its story in the most cinematic way possible. It breathes purity in film, in my eyes.
