As a character study, There Will Be Blood is unsurpassed. Just don't expect to strike oil straight away.

Who suggested the John Huston accent? We keep expecting Daniel Plainview to molest a young niece or something.

Anderson's vision is uncompromising and razor sharp. Nothing in his first four features quite prepares us for the precision and vicious wit displayed here.

In a way, there's not a step you haven't seen in classics going as far back as Citizen Kane. Still, there are enough oddities in the details to keep you full of questions.

This is a film by Paul Thomas Anderson that has overshot the runway of movie modernity with something thrillingly, dangerously new.

It takes a talented person to make a great film, but it takes an even more talented one to know when to say enough is enough.

This sometimes magnificent, decidedly strange film is a portrait of a terrible, rapacious man.

It's a biblical parable about America's failure to square religion and greed. But most of all it is a marvellously entertaining soap: a sort Dickens does Dallas, without the sex or swimming pools.

There Will Be Blood establishes itself as a film of Darwinian ferocity, a stark and pitiless parable of American capitalism.

If Day-Lewis isn't front and center, the film drags with themes such as oil vs. religion, and greed is always around...

As a film about one man's obsessive egomania, There Will Be Blood does its job.

I just sat there in awe the entire two hours and thirty minutes of the film, just completely stunned as to what I was seeing.

... when we look back at "There Will Be Blood" decades from now, we will probably be saying the sprawling epic about oil, family, faith, greed and deception is Anderson's crowning achievement. And that's saying a lot.
