a requiem for human decency, trampled beneath the onslaught of capitalism, progress, and a heightened sense of purpose that becomes a twisted justification for personal excess

Plainview's character is unchanging, and Day-Lewis's dour portrayal becomes somewhat tiresome going on for so long as it does. (Blue-ray Edition)

Typical of Paul Thomas Anderson's movies, the two disc 'collector's edition' DVD gets fascinating and slightly unconventional treatment.

A collector's edition that, on the basis of its skimpy extras, gives 2007's best film the shaft.
