Old_Snake_84’s review published on Letterboxd:
The concept of a film about prospecting and oil mining may not seem appealing, but this film is so much more.
A gripping tale of one man's greed, selfishness and slow descent into eventual madness.
Daniel Day-Lewis is phenominal as the low brow, evil eyed and unpredictable Daniel Plainview, and Paul Dano gives an amusing performance as the sniveling, worm like Reverend Eli Sunday.
Entertaining from start to finish with some unforgettable scenes this is one milkshake I would drink... I DRINK IT UP!
