There Will Be Blood | Ratings & Reviews

"One of the year's best and a must-see for all film lovers."


"Boldly and magnificently strange, There Will Be Blood marks a significant departure in the work of Paul Thomas Anderson."


"The film is above all a consummate work of art, one that transcends the historically fraught context of its making, and its pleasures are unapologetically aesthetic. It reveals, excites, disturbs, provokes, but the window it opens is to human consciousness itself."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Truth be told - and this is a film about truth-telling, among other things - this is where Daniel Day-Lewis finds a character large enough for his enormous acting talent."

Sunday Star-TimesSunday Star-Times

"This is also, and profoundly, a moviemaker's film: particularly in the sequences of work, in which blood and sweat and sweet crude mix and no one speaks, it is pure retina-searing cinema. Enthralling."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"The thing about There Will Be Blood is you can admire its creation, its crafting and its worth... but you might not enjoy doing it. I can certainly see this film's worth - I just didn't enjoy it."


"This may be an extremely bold statement to make, but there hasn’t been such an amazing character study in film since “Citizen Kane.” I honestly can’t praise it enough. From the opening to the ghastly ending, this film will sit in the depths of your stomach for some time to come."

Film ThreatFilm Threat

"Uncompromising, intelligent and searing cinema. Along with The Assassination Of Jesse James... and No Country For Old Men, this is the best batch of Western-set dramas in decades. John Huston would have been proud."
