There Will Be Blood
Paul Thomas Anderson
Based on a novel by Upton Sinclair which takes place in the early 20th Century, the film focusses on a greedy miner turned oilman Daniel Plainview played by Daniel Day-Lewis and a local preacher Eli Sunday played by Paul Dano. This film revolves around a man’s love for his family and business which soon turns into hatred and madness. Paul Thomas Anderson does brilliant work to show this transformation by bringing out strong and convincing performances from the actors.
