There Will Be Blood
—2007, Paul Thomas Anderson
*Great film. Brilliant character.
I’m so guilty of this mindset. You just can’t help it,when you’re surrounded by arseholes who don’t have the ability to treat people right yet spend a tremendous amount of energy hating & harming people. But it’s also important to know that there are always a few very good people out there.
There’s so much cruelty already & too little kindness; do not be Daniel Plainview,do not abandon your child & sing the “bastard on a basket anthem” to them,do not threaten people that you’re gonna slash their throats while they’re sleeping & break a delusional man’s skull with a bowling pin..although that might actually cure him from his delusions.
Be Daniel day Lewis instead because he’s awesome & has a great moustache.
But seriously,he’s one great actor. Paul Dano has done a pretty good job on this film too.
