There Will Be...Oscars!!!

Went to the movies today and saw There Will Be Blood and it was spectacular. Also very long, gorgeous, beautifully photographed and featuring flawless performances from every actor. It is a rare film lately that doesn't have a moment where I think "Dammit, that lamp is wrong!" or doubt the sincerity of a piece of dialogue, hate a wardrobe decision or wish for a different Director of Photography (I have been spoiled by Thomas, whom I met at film school.) This film was perfect. For those of you compelled to see the Oscar nominated films - get thee to this one - you will be richly rewarded. I'm even going to pick up Upton Sinclair's novel Oil, which the film is based on.
