Aww my little Daniel in my sig disappeared. I'm guessing it was above the size limit and the mods deleted it. Care to elaborate mods? What is the size limit for pics in sigs? *cough* Clowny's mad Ash gif must have been bigger than my b&w twbb one...*cough*

A good film but left me kinda underwhelmed.

I'm not a huge day lewis fan and his performance in this did nothing to change my mind.

I do love PT Anderson though this would probably be my least favourite of his films.

Paul Dano's performance and Jonny Greenwoods score were the best things about it.

I am looking forward to eventually watching it again though, maybe a second viewing is whats needed.

It does improve on repeat viewings, but then I enjoyed it to begin with!

Daniel Day-Lewis is amazing. He actually learned Czech so he would have a convincing Czech accent for Unbearable Lightness of Being. And then was all upset about the fact that he should have used the language and not spoke English anyway.

Daniel Day Lewis is great in every movie he was ever in. I mean how can a man like him who is so dedicated and precise in everything he does, not be liked. He's simply fantastic, besides his Oscar wins for My Left Foot and There Will Be Blood, he could have well won for In The Name Of The Father and Gangs Of New York. What are the odds he'll get more Oscars in his career?

Adrien Brody for The Pianist. great performance, but I still think it should have gone to Day-Lewis. (Why isn't he knighted yet?)

Oh ya a great performance from Brody, but I agree Day-Lewis should have won. Can he still be knighted even though is classed as an Irish citizen as well?

I have! I bought it in the sales. I rather liked it. I wish I watched with someone as I tend to find my concentration wonders on my own, but other than the fact its maybe a touch sex-obsessed, its a really good film.

Fascinating facts, selected from imdb.com

Dillon Freasier (who plays H.W. Plainview, the son of the character played by Daniel Day-Lewis) was not an actor; he was an elementary student near the film's West Texas shooting location. On the radio program "Fresh Air with Terry Gross," Paul Thomas Anderson told Gross that when the production was trying to convince Dillon's mother to allow Dillon to be in the movie, his mother wanted to figure out who Day-Lewis was, so she rented a copy of Gangs of New York (2002) (in which Day-Lewis plays a murderous gang leader nicknamed "The Butcher"). She panicked at the idea of her son spending time with the man she saw in that movie, so the ‘There Will Be Blood’ casting department rushed to her a copy of The Age of Innocence (1993), in which Day-Lewis plays a civilized and gentle man.

Director Paul Thomas Anderson owns a vintage 1910 Pathe camera which contains a special 43mm lens. The lens was specially modified to be used in the film as it has very low resolution and can shift colors at corners. Only certain shots of the film used this lens; for example a shot of Plainview sleeping in the train with an infant H.W.

Paul Thomas Anderson planned to have the restored bowling alley (used at the climax) located at the Greystone Mansion to be entirely painted in white to give some Kubrick symmetry and menacing quality (also a nod to A Clockwork Orange (1971)). However, he changed it to its original state when it was later decided that the bowling alley was to be given away for ownership after filming.

Daniel Day-Lewis improvised the speech he gives to the citizens of Little Boston, about building schools, bringing bread to the town, etc. Paul Thomas Anderson says of this, "It was delicious. It was Plainview on a platter."

The infamous "I drink your milkshake!" is, in part, a real quote. Paul Thomas Anderson found the metaphor in congressional transcripts from the 1920's Teapot Dome scandal, in which New Mexico Republican Senator Albert Fall was convicted of accepting bribes for oil drilling rights to various lands. According to Anderson, "I think it was Albert Fall, who was asked to describe drainage before Congress. And his way of describing it was, 'If you have a milkshake and I have a milkshake, and my straw reaches across the room ...' I'm sure I embellished it and changed it around and made it more Plainview. But Fall used the word milkshake, and I thought it was so great. It was mad to see that word among all this official testimony and terminology - a fucking milkshake. I get so happy every time I hear that word."

Some good stories there, I particularly like the one about DDL improv'ing, that shows how into the character's mind set he was because that speech seems totally in place with what Plainview would say. I'd have like to see the white bowling alley but it may have detracted from the action unfolding in those closing scenes.

I've never witnessed a Daniel Day Lewis acting performance in my life. I think most actors are overrated in general and his name is always placed up there with 'the greats', one day i guess i'll have to put myself through a movie with him in! He needs to pick an action or horror project ideally
