'There Will Be Blood'
(Daniel Day-Lewis, Paul Dano, Kevin J. O'Connor, Ciaran Hinds, et al / R / 160 mins / Paramount)

Overview: At the turn of the 20th century, Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis) is a poor prospector who finally strikes it rich when he finds oil. However, money doesn't quite bring happiness and, in fact, it brings a whole host of new problems with which he has to contend.

Review: I'm very glad that director P.T. Anderson has decided to leave the San Fernando Valley for this film. I go there all the time, and I never meet the porn stars or experience the biblical revelations found in his films. It's just where IKEA is. So his expanded vision of the struggle between evil and more evil is like someone saving the good stuff for later. This is the best movie he's ever made, and if you're not a huge fan of his, then that might not be enough praise. It's one of the best movies anyone's made all year. It's long and sprawling and earns the right to be that. Do I really need to say any more ... I think not!
