Re: “California Crude

Opinions are, by their very nature, subjective. Therefore the opinion of this reviewer is as valid as any.

But I just cannot agree. Whilst I am yet to be introduced to the Huston character to which the reviewer refers, and perhaps if I had seen Chinatown the similarities between Plainview and Huston would become apparent, in isolation I found Daniel Day Lewis' performance to be utterly enthralling.

To me, the movie was a wonderful depiction of two very opposite people who ultimately descend into the same madness brought about by their own peculiar manifestations of greed and grandeur.

Therefore I have less of a problem with the review, and more of a problem with those commenters who state that people only liked it because they were told to. Errrr, no! I personally watch very few films, finding most of Hollywood's offerings formulaic and unoriginal.

In my opinion the same cannot be said for There Will Be Blood.
