i just saw this movie and it is a great display of art.Finally there is an artist in art of cinema who cares for the beauty of the cinema,who has not been seduced by hollywood and "movie".I THANK GOD FOR GIVING US PTA AND DANIEL DAY LEWIS

PTA isn't in the entertainment business. He's in the art business. Thus, watching his films solely for enjoyment is a wrong way to watch them. He's not the everyman director... His films are rarely humorous, rarely action-filled, and they just kind of plod along. But, what Anderson does better than almost anyone else is to fuse an impressionistic storyline with incredible characters. His films are always beautiful, but difficult to relate to. I think this is definitely PTA's best film followed by Magnolia. If you want a film that's overhyped, watch Boogie Nights. I think that film is more rudimentary in terms of filmmaking. He's only gotten better with age.

I didn't like it THAT much, but I can see how someone wouldn't like this.

I had friend as raving about it. I understand the symbolism and what it is trying to do but I just find DDL so tedious. I couldn't have cared about my of the characters at all and the very obvious symbolism must appeal to people like Daniel and Seb below, as they haven't seen anything better which is a Shame.

I really liked it. I thought Daniel Day Lewis was fantastic and Paul Dano was superb as well. Cinematography was great and I really liked the score, too. Personally, though, I find No Country For Old Men to be a much better film and have a better written story.

That's because it was written by Cormac McCarthy and the Coen brothers just adapted it to a screenplay, while changing very little about the dialogue and plot.
This on the other hand is an original story written by PT Anderson and loosely adapted from Oil! by Upton Sinclair. I have a lot more respect for a man who can produce an original script and story than someone who just copies a book verbatim and adapts it to the screen.
That said, I like No Country as well, but TWBB outweighs it as a true masterpiece. This is really one you have to watch more than once, I've seen it about 3 times already and I still notice little things every time I watch it.

When I first watched it a couple years ago, I didn't appreciate the movie so much as the performance by Daniel Day-Lewis; I think I'd probably appreciate it a bit more now that I've seen more cinema.

It's not just you. I can respect the acting and the symbolism, but the movie did nothing to make me feel connected to any of the characters. When it finally crawled towards its inevitable climax, I couldn't possibly have cared any less.

Well said, I felt the same way.
That's why you're an idiot
