    daniel plainviews character coupled with D.D. Lewis' performance are what keep me coming back to this film. i'd never thought that would be enough of a reason to label a film as my favorite, but there it is.

    to anyone planning on watching this film, let it be known that the story doesn't exactly follow a conventional plot, it's more about the unfolding of a character and his descent into avarice. the oil fire scene acts as a catalyst for the descent, so expect a slow (BUT NECESSARY) start.

    if you havn't seen this film, i implor you to just spend two hours of your life to witnessing one of the greatest anti-heroes to ever be put on screen.

    Much credit given to DD Lewis and rightly so but Paul Dano's performance is where it's at. 7 years ago

    Some of the best cinematography I've seen. Also Daniel Day Lewis' performance is beyond words in this one. The writing is brilliant as well. 10 years 6 months ago
