"A masterpiece from Paul Thomas Anderson. You won't be able to shake it off. Daniel Day Lewis delivers a chilling portrait of greed. He can be charming, cunning, terrifying and pathetic -- sometimes all at once. This is a landmark performance."

Grace Is Gone (2007)

Revolver (2005)

"A psychological thriller that focuses more on the 'psycho' than the 'logical' for its own good. But who says everything has to make sense when you're just trying to blow a few brains out?"

August Rush (2007)

Fred Claus (2007)

P2 (2007)
