Daniel Day-Lewis Marks Return With ‘Blood’
Known for his odd little ways, his do-or-die acting methods, and his fabulous skill, Daniel Day-Lewis has enjoyed a stellar film career - though by Hollywood standards, he makes films infrequently. Missing from the big screen since 2005, the award-winning actor has made a triumphant return to films today in Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood. Very different from the bevy of family-oriented holiday flicks currently clogging up the theaters, this feature film deals in avarice, oil, madness and, of course, blood.
Anderson is known for dramatic films like Magnolia and Mark Wahlberg’s break-out film Boogie Nights, but There Will Be Blood isn’t like either one of these previous efforts. Day-Lewis (whose own unique brand of method acting has labeled him as truly eccentric and maybe even a little ’round the bend) plays Daniel Plainview in a performance that’s being heralded by the critics (he’s already received a Golden Globe nomination, too). Plainview is involved with oil in a century-old setting, a man who will do whatever he has to do to get his own way.
Yahoo! reviewers have called the dramatic epic a “masterpiece” and granted the film three and a half stars (on a scale of four total). Why is the film this good? Because Daniel Day-Lewis is in it.
