There Will Be Blood ★★★★★

Absolutely incredible film, and so so gothic. Combat between two antagonists, fathers and sons, humiliation, burning fires and the blood of the earth and the blood of a false Christ. Also it's probably the longest film since Lawrence of Arabia where the main character doesn't ever have a love interest or a sexuality at all.

I'm doing an episode on this - got so much more to say. This is a long one but it's brilliantly done in every way and I wish I'd had the chance to see it in cinemas. Pair it with Friedkin's Sorcerer and Arcade Fire's Neon Bible.
