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.
