There Will Be Blood

There Will Be Blood ★★★★★

Daniel Plainviews descent into madness and greediness after becoming rich from oil drilling is on of the most attention grabbing stories I've experienced on film. The viewing is just pure eyecandy as the cinematography is brilliantly done and the glimpse of the early 20th century we get in TWWB is remarkably realistic.

The most outstanding elements about this film however is the incredible performances, it seemed like the actors shared empathy towards their characters. It's nothing like I've ever seen before.

The classical pieces played though out are very powerful, it really helps enhance the viewing experience as it beautifully empowers the dramatic effect the film has.

PTA is a master filmmaker.
