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.

One of the most wholly original American movies ever made.

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