There Will Be Blood
by Harriet Robbins
Daniel Day Lewis' riveting (and Oscar-winning) performance sets the pace, aided by a superb ensemble cast.
The forces that have formed our present-day political and economic dynamics are explored and dramatized in fire and brimstone fashion, on an operatic scale.
THERE WILL BE BLOOD joins the elite group of American film classics. Some will love it, others hate it, but it is a film that cannot be ignored. Thanks to its ingredients, it sums up the way we live today, warts and all, as we head toward an uncertain future.
