One of the most highly acclaimed films of recent years, Paul Thomas Anderson's 'There Will Be Blood' is also one of the strangest.

The Oscar-winning Daniel Day-Lewis is larger than life as a black-hearted oil baron whose prospecting in the early 1900s brings him into conflict with Paul Dano's ambitious young minister. The stage is set for an epic battle for the soul of the West, but 'There Will Be Blood' is more eccentric and bitty than that, with very few major characters, and a structure that jumps from scene to scene without ever connecting them into a plot.
