What a film. Daniel Day-Lewis gives an utterly incredible performance - one that's recently been voted among the best of all time - as Daniel Plainview in this wicked movie.

Cheapest I could find online.

Product description:
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.

It's a pretty long film, but Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano's performances are incredible.

Yeah man! Day-Lewis especially. What else has Paul Dano been in? Didn't really recognise him?

Haha I was just thinking the other day how he's probably one of my favourite directors because he's never put a foot wrong in my book.... Guess i'd better go join the club!! :P

But you can't say much against Magnolia, that's a brilliant film!

That film is my BIGGEST gripe with him, overdone with the seemingly self-indulgent soundtrack, next time you watch you'll see my point.....and then there's that sing along. No doubt he has good film-making craftsmanship, just something about him gives me that feeling that he's one of those self-righteous Americans

EDIT - Although the Tom Cruise character in it is hilarious

While I get what you mean about self-righteous Americans, I'm gunna have to disagree with you about the film itself being indlugent crap buddy! I always thought the over-the-top bits like the sing-along are deliberately done that way to be a comical sort of mockery of other films, don't you think?

Yeah it's wicked - so is this film! Have you seen Boogie Nights?

Yeah, as for that Spoiler... well done genius - way to go wreck quite an important aspect of the film for everyone who hasn't seen it! Go and delete it and post the question on an open movie forum where you know you're going to get a spoiler. * Edit, spoiler removed - all is well with the world once again.


Brilliant, original and long enough to savour the acting chops!

Some posts deleted. Please remember to be courteous to other members, also don't post film spoilers in comments.

I see the prat who posted the end spoiler has had his comment removed. Idiots like that should have their accounts suspended.

You should have your account suspended, I edited my post and put spoiler at the top. You're just rude and offensive man. Sort yourself out

You put the word "SPOILER" then the plot give-away so close together, it would be impossible not to read what you had ruined for anyone who hasn't yet seen the film. And just to make things crystal clear, you are EXACTLY what I originally called you.

Yeah it's wicked - so is this film! Have you seen Boogie Nights?


Boogie night is £6.49 on amazon. Bought that as well. Thanks for reminding me of some great films. All I can say in response is American beauty, cracking film

I actually edited it again, with a gap. It is possible for people not to read it. Are you telling me you read a line and the line below it at the same time? Silly thing to say. Well you must be a cold person who has no life then if you're that offensive to strangers, enjoy it.

While you're still here, why not tell everyone how American Beauty ends too?? I bet you're itching to.

How childish are you? Go away.

One of the worst things you can do on the internet is give away plot spoilers, it ruins films for those who haven't seen the film. The fact you did it so boldly (BEFORE you were requested to make an edit), means you either did it on purpose, making you a nasty person, or it was an accident, making you a person without the intellect to think about other people's feelings. Personally, judging by your responses, you sound underage, and if so, I may be inclined to forgive your youth and lack of wisdom. But if you ARE an adult, then people like you get all the literal retribution you deserve and maybe one day you'll realise why.

Just stop what you're doing, you're reading far too much into this. Please just go away, nobody likes you.

If over 30 counts as "underage" then yes I'm underage.

Not voting cold on the deal but in case strangers to this film are buying all the praise and thinking of splashing the cash - you may find this is actually one of the most ludicrously hammy OTT acting performances. Might have looked good on the stage viewed from a distance of fifty yards but not on celluloid.

Everyone on earth knows how American Beauty ends, it ends with Kevin Spacey's character having to make the biggest decision of his life:
