79. There Will Be Blood (A)

My introduction to Paul Thomas Anderson back in 2007, though it took me until this year to start in on the rest of his filmography. After watching his two late-90s hits a while ago, I decided to revisit this. This has a much smaller cast (it borders on being a one-man show for Daniel Day-Lewis, with Paul Dano showing up periodically; Ciaran Hinds is kind of wasted as Plainview's #2). Both the movie and Day-Lewis' performance skirt right up to the edge of being histrionic, but somehow it all keeps together (though I can appreciate why some people might think it doesn't).
