There Will Be Blood

A Movie Reel

There Will Be Blood: 8.5 out of 10.

They should rename this film "The Daniel Day-Lewis Show".  It's his movie, in fact, I can't remember a scene without him as the focal point.  He's all over this Paul Thomas Anderson flick about a a turn-of-the-century oil prospector and he's brilliant.

I'm not a fan of movies in excess of 2.5 hours because it's so tough with two kids to find an uninterrupted block of quiet time that length, but I didn't want this one to end.  If you haven't seen it yet, add it to your queue.
