There Will Be Blood (P.T. Anderson – 2007) A-

A bit slow, but never boring and accented with sharp music and drab cinematography. Daniel Day Lewis should definitely win the Oscar for this  memorable and tough performance. Another actor who had a very small but memorable role here is the old guy with the leathery face who played William Bandy. Apparently his name is Colton Woodward and according to IMDB, he’s never done anything else. Other than Day Lewis, he probably had the longest close up shot of his face, you just have to see it to know what I mean. I was also acutely aware of the average shot length here. One brilliant one lasted at least one minute or maybe two. I’d love to know what the average shot length was here.
