There Will Be Blood
We continue our month of Paul Thomas Anderson Classics with There Will Be Blood (2007) Silver miner Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis) leads a hardscrabble life with his son, H.W. (Dillon Freasier). When he hears about oil oozing from the ground near the Western town of Little Boston, Daniel takes his son on a mission to find their fortune. Daniel makes his lucky strike and becomes a self-made tycoon but, as his fortune grows, he deviates into moral bankruptcy. We close out the month with The Master next week. Same time, same place.
