There Will Be Blood ( DVD ) £2.93 @ HMV

Classic!!!!

This is the single disc version.

Director Paul Thomas Anderson's THERE WILL BE BLOOD is a masterly, unflinching examination of a consummately evil man. Daniel Plainview (via a transcendent performance by the great Daniel Day-Lewis) is, as he likes to remind those around him, an oil man: he finds it, he drills for it, and he makes money from it. Following a tip from a visitor named Paul Sunday, whose family sits atop a veritable ocean of oil, Plainview travels to the town of New Boston, California, with his young son. Sunday's preacher brother Eli (both roles are played by the excellent Paul Dano) grudgingly accepts Plainview's ambitions under the condition that he help fund the town church. As Plainview's plans come to fruition, a series of events begin to fracture the insular world he has constructed for himself, pitting Plainview against Sunday and forcing him to become even more vindictive and ruthless.
Anderson proved with BOOGIE NIGHTS and MAGNOLIA that he was adept at handling expansive storylines and layered plots; however, he stakes out a claim here as a new master of the cinematic epic. The film is visually stunning, and alternates between lush widescreen shots of the desert and meticulously composed, darkly lit close-up of his actors, presenting complex images of the American landscape and the souls that dot it. As a narrative, THERE WILL BE BLOOD is told with a sense of economy, yet never at the expense of the film's inherently grand scope. It's difficult to determine precisely what Anderson wants his viewers to take from the experience: the film is, in the end, appropriately complex and ambiguous. THERE WILL BE BLOOD forces us to confront Plainville, who seems to be a larger-than-life personification of evil; that we don't entirely understand him at the film's conclusion is not a shortcoming, but rather a tribute to the depths of this most vile creature and this most brilliant film.

When I saw this film I was left wondering why I had allowed myself to be manipulated into wasting well over two hours of my life just to watch Daniel Day Lewis shout a lot. If I wanted to see that all over again I could watch re-runs of Gangs of New York. The film offers nothing by way of pace, it does not allow you to develope any sympathy, empathy or care for any of the characters paths and quite simply flounders, leaving you empty and cheated of your time and money. When are people going to realise that Hollywood is laughing at their gullibility. It's so trendy to like films like this isn't it? Well I don't pay my money to be seen as clever and arty, I pay it to be entertained. This is not an entertaining film.

you probably were just not in the right frame of mind to appreciate it. I understand you didn't enjoy the film but to say hollywood is trying to con us in some way by making a complicated ambiguous character study of an oil prospector in the late 1800's ?..yeah, hollywood always pumping out that kind of crap.

I have to agree, it's a plotless collection of disconnected episodes with a ludicrous ending.

This site specializes in providing counter examples to this old adage. This movie is not one of them.

I tried watching this a few weeks back when it was shown on Film 4 - incredibly boring

No, it just got some critical praise.

It's a simple character study, I thought it quite good.

It's certainly slow, thoughtful and meticulous, not necessarily for the 2FAST2FURIOUS or The Hangover lovers!

It's one of those films I DO find myself wanting to see again myself, not just with a new audience.
