    A masterclass performance by Daniel Day Lewis!

    Unquestionably this has become one of my favorite films of all-time, and probably that is the only American film I can say this about from the past 5 years. Every shot is drenched in visual poetry. The production design in stellar. The cinematography is mind-bending. Daniel-Day Lewis gives one of the great performances of all time and Johnny Greenwood delivers one of the best scores ever (unsurprisingly as Radiohead is one of the best bands ever. If you need something fast-moving and don\'t like to think too much go elsewhere. This is not ******************** art. There\'s a big difference.
