There Will Be Blood (Academy Awards O-Sleeve)
This widely acclaimed masterpiece and must see American epic features the Academy Award winning performance of Daniel Day-Lewis (Best Actor, 2007). Daniel Plainview and son are independent oil men, looking for prospects in California at the turn of the 20th century. They are challenged by a young preacher, Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), whose own ambition is matched by Plainview's. Their battle forms the center of a scary, darkly comic historical journey into an abyss of madness "There Will Be Blood is Paul Thomas Anderson's epic American nightmare, belching fire and brimstone and damanation to hell. It is, above all, a consummate work of art" (Manahola Dargis, The New York Times).
