Written for the Screen and Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
|This widely acclaimed masterpiece and must see American epic features the Academy Award wining performance of Daniel Day-Lewis (Best Actor, 2007). Daniel Plainview and son are independent oil men, looking for prospects in California at the turn of the 20th century. They are challenged by a young preacher, Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), whose own ambition is matched by Plainview's. Their battle forms the center of a scary, darkly comic historical journey into an abyss of madness. "There Will Be Blood is Paul Thomas Anderson's epic American nightmare, belching fire and brimstone and damnation to hell. It is, above all, a consummate work of art" (Manahola Dargis, The New York Times).|
"This is truly a work of symphonic aspirations and masterful execution. J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
"Daniel Day-Lewis stuns in Paul Thomas Anderson's saga of a soul-dead oil man. John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
"...a consummate work of art, one that transcends the historically fraught context of its making... Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
"In terms of excitement, imagination and rule-busting experimentation, it's a gusher. Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"One of the most wholly original American movies ever made. Richard Schickel, Time
"...there hasn't been such an amazing character study in film since "Citizen Kane." I honestly can't praise it enough. Zack Haddad, Film Threat
Editor's NoteDirector 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.
There Will Be Blood - Blu-ray Review

|There Will Be Blood is certainly not an easy film to watch, nor is it a particularly enjoyable experience. But it's an immensely powerful movie that's also darkly humorous, poignant, emotional, violent and ultimately, quite tragic. It's a perversely compelling story about a man who's torn to shreds by a world not fit enough for his madness, hatred, and stark self loathing. ...read the full review|

$3.99 ship steep for 10 day. bought 5 used movies $19.95 to ship. assume sent separate, but came in 1 cheap bubble envelope,1 broken case due to that. paid 2 x postage than movies cost. envelope & postage actually under $5 I checked W/ P.O. ripoff !
$3.99 is plenty for s&h for a dvd super slow mail, but $19.95 for 5 dvds is steep, when all come from one place at the same time. One package one reasonable price is more fair.I payed twice the price of the dvds for s&h.I will not be buying further.
$3.99 ea s&h is plenty, but $19.95 fir 5 sent at the same time from the same place is steep. One box one charge would be fair. I paid twice what I paid for the DVDs in shipping.
