Anderson's latest succeeds in being both miniature and epic in its story of early oilman Plainview, played with fanatical absorption by Daniel Day-Lewis (winning the Oscar for best actor), and his confrontation with preacher Eli Sunday. The director takes tremendous risks, for instance casting Paul Dano unrealistically as both Sunday and Sunday’s own brother, or letting the camera drift over scenes languidly, or allowing Jonny Greenwood's score to soar over the soundtrack. The story is both relevant – to today's battles over oil and religion – yet timeless. Some even claim it has 'overshot the runway of movie modernity with something thrillingly, dangerously new.' (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian)
