There Will Be Blood

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
United States, 2007
  • English
  • No subtitles


Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Punch-Drunk Love) directs this loose adaptation of an Upton Sinclair novel about a ruthless turn of the century oilman, ferociously played by Daniel Day-Lewis.

Our take

With a hair-raising orchestral score, stark cinematography, and powerhouse performances, this is an uncompromising, ultra-acclaimed American epic that fires on all cylinders. A titanic feat of filmmaking—the first collaboration of Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis.
