There Will be Blood – 2007 – Paul Thomas Anderson

blood.jpgA charismatic but solitary oil tycoon uses his adopted son to charm his way to success. Underneath his professionalism, Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis) is a madman and a ruthless opportunist. Day-Lewis’ execution is off the charts, it’s hard to discern if he’s evil or just a tortured soul – something a more prominent sub-plot could have shed light on. Cristina Pittelli

Piety meets the pipeline in this epic tale of oil, greed and false prophets. Daniel Day Lewis is hypnotic as an entrepreneurial ‘oil lord’ – his voice, his ruthlessness, his unnerving grin and manic tendencies. The lesson to be learned; oil men are mad men. JJ
