Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

There Will Be Blood (2007)

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson

Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Paul Dano, CiarĂ¡n Hinds, Martin Stringer


An emotional look at the downward spiral of success.

Plainview is an interesting character, and the sets (or lack of sets) really makes it feel like you’re out there with Plainview looking for oil. The costumes and dialogue and mannerisms really set the time, and the dissonant string score really sets the mood.
