THERE WILL BE BLOOD
DIRECTOR: PAUL THOMAS ANDERSON
CAST: DANIEL DAY-LEWIS, PAUL DANO, CIARáN HINDS
Working with the loose model of Upton Sinclair’s novel Oil!, Anderson wrought this tale of greed, obsession, and blind competitive rage in the California oilfields at the turn of the last century, in which the forces of capital and faith, as embodied by Daniel Day-Lewis’s feral would-be tycoon and Paul Dano’s boy preacher, are locked in an acrimonious grudge match. A testament to the genius of production designer Jack Fisk, and recently named “Best Film of the 21st Century So Far” by The New York Times.
