There will be blood


This was a magnificent film; a tremendous portrait of a man descending into the depths in every sense. Lots of rich imagery and symbolism to ponder (I especially loved the 'anointing' of HW very early in the film). However - and you knew there was a however coming - this is not as spiritually rich as 'Magnolia' principally because there was no orthodox view represented; thus no redemption. That was probably the director's intent, but it is still a disappointment.

4.5 out of 5.
