There will be Blood. 2007.

This was another film up for Best Picture in 2007, so I thought I’d take a look.  While the trailer looked good, and the movie was captivating, I was not that crazy about it, especially the ending.

After watching it, I found it was based on the book “Oil” by Upton Sinclair written in 1927.

I did think the performance of Daniel Day-Lewis was fantastic — he won Best Leading Actor and I think that was well deserved.  It also won Best Cinematography, and it was a visually appealing movie.  Very dark in some places, but that was the point in those scenes. I also was not crazy about the sound.  I guess it was done that way to create tension, but it was more grating than anything.
