An amazing line that takes so long to get to, but worth every moment. Last night, now that family has gone back to Maryland, we sat down to enjoy a movie together. There Will be Blood lived up to all of my hopes, actually it was better. I was expecting an extremely violent movie, while the violence was detailed and intimate it was not unnecessary. In other words it made it's point. I also was expecting over the top freakiness from the characters, as strange and disturbed as they were it seemed true to me, not a caricature at all, but believable people.
The part of the movie that I was looking forward to the most was the music. Jonny Greenwood (aka Radiohead's guitarist) did an amazing job, some may say heavy handed, but I loved it. There were moments where the music was so loud and powerful it overtook the dialogue, it was the musical version of mud/blood hitting the camera which was also done in this movie. I like the reminders that we are watching a creation rather than being fooled we are participants. Anyway I cannot remember a movie since The Shining that so creeped me out by the music. I know my recommendation/review comes well after most have probably seen it, but if you have waited like we did you won't be disappointed.
