movie thoughts: There Will Be Blood

“I drink your milkshake!  I DRINK IT UP!”

My brother has been shouting that line at random intervals for months now.  I knew it was from this movie, but I had not seen it in context…until now.  I have to say it was my favorite part of the film. 

And yes, this felt like a film not a movie.  Everyone did a great job acting (I was blown away by the kid from ‘Little Miss Sunshine’.  Nice to see him again, even if he was pretty much cRazY).  You gotta really like Daniel Day-Lewis to enjoy this movie because I think he is in every single scene.  He does act his butt off the entire 2+hours (it was really long). 

It was a good movie but it was intense and not something I think I would want to see again.  It was sad and strange, with very little humor or even relief from the seriousness of it all (apart from the line mentioned above, which I felt came too late…sorta wish we could have started the movie there).

I’d give it 3 out of 5 stars, which translates to an “I’m happy to have seen it once and to finally understand the quoted line, but I doubt I will ever watch it again”.
