There Will Be Blood- August 12th

There Will Be Blood (2007)
English- Drama
Rated “R”
Runtime- 158 min.
dir. Paul Thomas Anderson
 

Daniel Day-Lewis is a crazy person, and I absolutely cannot wait to see him in Lincoln.

Story/Writing: 2/2

It can get rather complicated at times, but it’s still a really good commentary on the dog-eat-dog side capitalism.

Acting: 1.5/2

Fantastic principles, but poor ensemble.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

Stark, realistic sets, but the cinematography can get a little strange and confusing. It never really gives the audience much time to acclimate.

Sound/FX: 2/2

Visceral effects complimented by good sound work. You really get a feel for the low-down dirty filthiness of the characters’ world. The soundtrack is good, too.

Misc: 1.5/2

Is it weird that I almost had fun watching this very violent and harsh film?

VERDICT: 8.5/10
