If you ever explore threads asking people to list the movies they find the most boring, you'll see that There Will Be Blood is often mentioned. I can understand why. The opening 14-and-a-half minutes doesn't contain any dialogue unless you count the occasional grunt or cry of pain. The score is often unsettling and unlike anything you would expect to hear. The pacing is slow and the film has plenty of painful scenes.

The opening scene is set in 1898 and gives us immediate insight into the character of Daniel Plainview (Day-Lewis). We see him working alone, prospecting for oil. It's a physically demanding occupation which is full of danger. One small lapse can cause a severe injury or even death. Plainview falls down a well shaft and breaks his leg, but discovers oil in the process. We then see him crawl backwards as he slowly makes his way into town to register the find. He's one of the most stubborn and driven characters you will ever see portrayed on film.

In 1902, he's working with a group of men, and we are reminded again how dangerous the work is. A tiny mistake results in the death of a man and Plainview adopts his orphaned baby boy.

The story jumps forward several years and we see Plainview and his adopted son, HW, attending a town meeting. Plainview has discovered that the region contains oil and we see him making an offer to extract the oil. His argument is calm, reasonable, and logical. He's quite a salesman. He talks of other offers the town may receive and why his own proposal is the best solution for everyone. We are given the impression that he knows what he's talking about and it's difficult to resist his offer.

When Plainview is visited by Paul Sunday (Dano), the main part of the film begins.

By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
If the early Paul Thomas Anderson seemed to be channeling the young hyper-energetic Martin Scorsese, 'There Will Be Blood' - a more quiet and thoughtful, but no less amazing and cinematic work - shows Anderson working in the vein of Stanley Kubrick. In place of a hyperactive camera, there is now a coldly, brilliantly observational one. In place of empathetic if damaged characters there are now people drowning in their own poison and lies.

He has created a film both boldly theatrical and subtly real, both broadly political and intensely personal. Complicated and intentionally confusing emotionally, with a protagonist gradually subsumed by greed, the film is full of ideas and themes, but feels more mature and focused than Anderson's earlier work, brilliant as that all was. Daniel Day Lewis is amazing, the film looks incredible (if simply shot for an Anderson film), one only sees more and more layers and meanings on repeated viewings.

One of the more important films of recent years, this critique of the American dream - both personal, and by extension national - of success, of conquest, and of control is mesmerizing, and ultimately devastating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh So Good..WOW. April 21 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Oh my goodness what a performance by Daniel Day-Lewis my god this guy is good
with his acting skills hands bloody down.Wow you got to see this movie which is
a true story by the way.i just can't believe there is only seventeen reviews
of this movie man what ashamed..
"This is one epic American classic that should not be missed" Daniel Day-Lewis, gives the
Academy Award Winning performance of his life, Daniel Plainview [Day-Lewis] and his son
are independent oil men, prospecting through California at the turn of the 20th century,
who was challenged by a young preacher, Eli Sunday played by [Paul Dano] which both men
lives turn into an abyss, and a darkly-journey of madness,
I have watched this movie So many Times, that the first time he meet the people to pitch his
prospecting ideas, I think I can recite every word that was said, here's what was said,word for word,

"Ladies and gentlemen, I traveled over Jist about half our state to get here this evenin'.
I couldn't get away sooner, because my new well was a-comin' in at Lobos River, and I had
to see about it.That well is now flowin' four thousand barrel, and payin' me an income of
five thousand dollars a day, I got two others drilling', and I got sixteen producin'
at Antelope. So, ladies and gentlemen if I say I'm an oil man, you got to agree,

"You got a great chanct here, ladies and gentlemen; but bear in mind, you can lose it all if you ain't
carful, out of all the fellers that beg you for a chanct to drill your land, maybe one in twenty will be oil men;
the rest will be speculators, fellers tryin' to get between you and the oil men.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest performances ever March 9 2011
Format:DVD
There Will Be Blood is one of the finest films of the decade and one of the greatest of all time. Daniel Day-Lewis is otherworldly as Daniel Plainview, a performance that stands with the best of Brando or De Niro. I couldn't believe when I saw people on here had rated this movie as anything less than 5 stars. The direction and cinematography are suberb, the storyline is both epic and personal, and the film explores the very essence of capitalism itself. This is a triumph of the highest order.

The criticisms on here echo those of moviegoers who are not versed in the language of cinema. This film is no more "slow" than Citizen Kane. This is one of the handful of perfect films ever made, in which not a thing is out of place. If you didn't enjoy the film, that's fine, but There Will Be Blood is objectively perfect.
