Movie of the week

Mo: Daniel Day-Lewis did one of the best acceptance speeches at this year´s Oscars when he won Best Actor for his role as Daniel Plainview in "There will be blood"... Day-Lewis seems to possess an intelligent, beautiful, artistic mind with a vocabulary that sounds like poetic rhyming.

"There will be blood" is a story about family, greed, religion and oil, centered around a turn-of-the-century prospector in the early days of the business.

The soundtrack is one of the most fascinating, disturbing pieces of work I´ve ever come across in a movie. It gives you creepy chills throughout the film and there is never a single doubt that the end will be anything but dark, moody and raw...

Daniel Day-Lewis does a tremendous job. He really is a phenomenal actor... and the rest of the acting is also first class. (Not one single lead role for a woman. I guess we were too busy having kids and tending the house in the early 20th century...) Expectations were sky high though and as a whole the movie gets a 3.5 out of 5. I prefer the violent and equally dark "No country for old men", which is just a tad less depressing...
