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.
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.
