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

Claudia Puig
USA Today
A searingly intense and artful tale that grabs hold of the viewer from its jarring and wordless opening scenes and doesn't let go. Full Review
Dana Stevens
For a story that's all about the harnessing of fateful chthonic forces, Paul Thomas Anderson has dug deeper than ever before, and struck black gold. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Unfortunately, the film's final third is poorly focused and, while there is a clear conclusion, it feels strangely hollow. Full Review
