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)

... reworks the American entrepreneurial success story as an elemental frontier myth, roughly hewn out of the landscape that is remade in its wake.

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.

Daniel Day-Lewis does an oil maniac in this emotionally drenched gut-slicing and grueling bipolar gore, and what is surely the most grotesque screen image ever of a warped male maternal instinct.
