There Will Be Blood,or as it’s known in our house ‘No Country For Old Men’,is a pretty amazing film. I’ve seen this one maybe 3 times now and it’s remained pretty good with repeat watching.The story starts with an ambitious young man digging for minerals by hand down a hole.Daniel soon strikes oil and prospers and is always on the lookout for new places to drill.He gets a tip off and goes in search of it buying all the land around so no one else can drill.It’s a slow enough burner but visually i think it looks great and with the accompanying score the 2.5 hours flys in.Day-Lewis deserved the Oscar for this.His scenes with the young preacher are totes-amazeballs.
