synopsis


The story chronciles the life and times of one Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis), who transforms himself from a down and out silver miner raising a son on his own into a self-made oil tycoon. When Plainview gets a mysterious tip off that there's a little town out West where an ocean of oil is oozing out of the ground, he heads with his son, H.W. (Dillon Freasier), to take their chances in dust worn Little Boston. In this hardscarbble town, where the main excitement centres around the holy roller church of charismatic preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), Plainview and H.W. make their lucky strike. But even as the well raises all of their fortunes, nothing will remain the same as conflicts escalate and every human value - love, hope, community, belief, ambition and even the bond between father and son - is imperiled by corruption, deception and the flow of oil.

Birth pains of the age of oil

A mesmerising and relentlessly gritty performance by Daniel Day-Lewis and brilliant cinematography really does make this a film well worth seeing. This tale of the rise and fall of a man driven by his own narrow an ultimately lonely ambition at the beginning of the age of oil also has interesting readings considering the hold this substance now has on our world. A diverse and evocative music score subtly compliments the stunning visuals and helps get you through what is quite a long film. I missed this one at the cinema but I’m so glad I caught up with it. Not your normal ‘run of the mill’ epic but an offbeat one in its own right. Excellent.
