24 Words Per Film #20



Dano's preacher and religion is slightly hokey, but Day-Lewis and Anderson almost make There Will Be Blood as powerful as it wants to be.

Holy crap you're back! That was one long-ass hiatus.

I can't wait to see this movie. From the trailers Lewis looks to give a completely over the top performance and I love talented actors giving over the top performances so I'm really looking forward to it.

I knew it would be you to welcome me back, Jonathan. Thank you, thank you. I'm still too poor for internet access, but once Spring semester starts at SFSU, I should be back in action.

As for THERE WILL BE BLOOD, if you're looking for "over-the-top," you got it. The two middle-aged women sitting next to me used the phrase about half-a-dozen times in their post-viewing discussion.

Good to see you back. Like Jonathan, I'm looking forward to seeing this immensely. Lewis has been a favourite of mine since I saw My Beautiful Laundrette, and to see him in a PT Anderson movie will be a real treat.
