"You're a bastard from a basket"-Daniel Plainview
Everybody uses the milkshake quote so I decided to go with the one above to mix things up. Anyway this film is damn near perfect! Daniel Day-Lewis is on beast mode in this film giving one of the greatest leading performances I've personally ever seen! Everyone in the film is great, but Lewis carries this thing on his back like Michael Jordan put the Bulls on his back delivering 6 NBA titles. It's impossible to say enough about his performance. Also on beast mode is PTA. I haven't seen all of his films, but I've seen most of them and I haven't seen a bad one yet. My only fear going into There Will Be Blood was considering it's about a con-man who's out for oil I thought it could be boring. Well that fear disappeared almost immediately! There's much more to it than that. Along with DDL's greedy oil grubbing ways, you get a strong story of family and faith. All of these things build and contrast with each other leading to the now infamous "I drink your milkshake" scene that is simply fantastic! Saying it's a must see is simply my opinion, but I know most would agree so see this film now what are you waiting for?
