Thanks for stopping by...


I'm really keen to get a look at a better version in quicktime, but it looks pretty promising to me -PT Anderson directing Daniel Day Lewis and Paul Dano in a story about the early years of the American Oil business, based on Upton Sinclair's Oil? Got to be some interest in that - plus the trailer has explosions!

Also found a scan from People magzine (US) of Daniel Day Lewis in his role from the film on Filmwad.com

Actually, that was rumored to be Day-Lewis, but it's not. He's in the trailer, and he's got his hair in the film. The bald guy is a different actor altogether.

It's funny - they do have a similar nose... trailer quality is so poor it's hard to tell.

edit: watched again, you're right - much heavier moustache too.

That was a beautifully done teaser, by my way of thinking, anyhows.

It felt like they could have pushed the voice over/ montage thing a little over the top, but it seemed relatively reigned in and soberly done. Nicely judged.

Dare I say it, it was... it was classy.

(yeah - I went there!)

I think it helped that the speach seemed to come largely come from one soliquised piece, pauses and all, rather than composed of several little sound-bites from the script, but I may be a little off on that.

There was some mighty strong images in there, too, even on tube-o-vision, as far as I could tell.

Overall, with the folks involved, Drew's enthusiasm for the script, and the distinctly classy feel of the trailer, I'm pretty much sold, I tell youse.

me too - I'll admit I thought of Malick's style watching the trailer - mostly because of the voice over, I think.

To me, the teaser felt unpolished and I'm tempted to say that it looks as though he's gone from sub-Altman to sub-Malick, but I don't want to oversimplify my position on PTA or make any premature judgements of this film. (Or maybe I just did). I'm still seeing it though.

Without launching into a full blown review, could you comment a bit on Ashby's infleuence on PDL? I'm curious because I've never seen an Ashby film, and up until now, I had thought it to be Anderson's most stylistically original (or at least PTA-ish) film yet.

It's a popular theory, but taking Boogie Nights as a case in point, although the influence in camera style (that early continuous shot that floats around the compound set to 'Spill the Wine') and even segments of the script (the big dig/Raging Bull finale for instance) is palpable and obvious, I don't think it detracts from the film as a whole.
Punch Drunk Love? I'll admit I never thought of the Hal Ashby comparison, so I'd love to hear someone make it, although I've only seen Harold and Maude, Shampoo and Being There (one of my favourite movies) so I might not be the best judge.

I go back and forth on PTA. No force on this earth could get me to watch "Magnolia" again; there's a good movie in there somewhere, but it needs to be dug out. "Boogie Nights" I enjoyed, but it offers no compelling reason for me to see it again. "Punch-Drunk Love" was absolutely brilliant.

I'll probably wind up seeing this, but this teaser doesn't arouse my interest much. It doesn't look like shit to me, but it doesn't compel me much.
This comment is in no way meant to insist your opinion is wrong or be considered an edict, solely this poster's opinion. That said, you are still a fool and will kneel before me in supplication.

The weird thing is that PTA says that Jonathan Demme is a huge influence on him. I'm not knocking Demme but I can't think of anything in any of his films I've seen that struck me as a stylistic hallmark. I was a bit amazed that anyone would cite Demme like that. Maybe it's just me.

My experience with PTA is extremely limited. The only PTA film I have seen all the way through is Boogie Nights. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Magnolia is my little brothers favorite film of all time...and I think he would consider PDL to be in his top five. He just loves PTA. I am pretty much indifferent to him...but this teaser got me extremely excited for the film. It has jumped up there with SUNSHINE as one of my most anticipated films.

Ashby’s influence on PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE (random thoughts ‘cuz I haven’t thought about this in quite some time)

Apologies for the glibness earlier, didn’t mean any slur upon PTA’s oeuvre, as I’ve thoroughly enjoyed three of his films myself, and don’t have much, if any, ethical/moral problems with artists re-imagining/honoring other artists work.

When I say that PTA had Ashby on the mind w/r/t PUNCHDL I’m not calling him out for aping Ashby’s “styleâ€

I saw this trailer on sunday and about shit my pants. Daniel Day Lewis was the reason to see Gangs of New York and the shots of him in the trailer and his heavily accented monolog really brings that character to mind.

Also, I've been hung up on the album Hex: Or Printing In The Infernal Method by Earth for the last year and the music on that album really evokes this frontier imagery, so I am stoked for this.

The new trailer (from mono's link) is great, It gives a lot of set up for the movie and really sets a tone. Paul Dano as A Christian evangelist healer up against DD Lewis as a Founding father of the Oil Industry, and as if I needed another reason to see this;

from Yahoo Movies coverage of Fantastic Fest...

The event made for another great surprise for salivating Austin audiences who were more than thrilled to find out what the final secret screening was. Much to their surprise and delight, Paul Thomas Anderson arrived with the very first public screening of his latest masterpiece, "There Will Be Blood," capping the fest with a thrilling high.


lucky bastages!

review already up @ Twitch.

Expect a mainpage review shortly...

"major stride forward by Anderson. Not only has he left behind the present-day San Fernando Valley suburban milleau of his last three films, he has greatly sharpened his storytelling abilities and broadened his visual palette" no treading water for PT Anderson then...

more news to come, more posters, more trailers as well. It will be moved about a week or so before the film screens properly.
