Paul Thomas Anderson has had an inspired career as a filmmaker so far. Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Punchdrunk Love have made Anderson a critical darling. He adds to his brilliant portfolio with his best film yet, There Will Be Blood. Loosely based on Upton Sinclair's 20's novel "Oil", Anderson's adaptation follows the exploits of ruthless oil baron Daniel Plainview. Played brilliantly by Daniel Day-Lewis, Plainview is one of cinemas most misanthropic characters. A parable of greed and treachery, There Will Be Blood is mesmerising.
Paul Thomas Anderson: The inspiration from the movie comes first and foremost from the book. I had been trying to write something, anything, just to get something written. I had a story that wasn't really working that was about fighting families. It didn't really have anything. It just had that premise. When I read the book there were so many ready-made scenes, and the great venue of the oil fields. Those were kind of the obvious things that seemed worth making a film about. The desire to work with Daniel [Day-Lewis], once that presented itself as a possibility, it certainly drove the engine for me to write it and finish it and get it to him.Read More
