    Themes and analysis

    Many have seen the film as a commentary on the nature of capitalism and greed, and its inherent national presence in America. Daniel Plainview's "I have a competition in me" speech has been looked upon as key when analyzing the film from this angle. David Denby of The New Yorker described the film as being about "... the driving force of capitalism as it both creates and destroys the future..." and goes on to say that "this movie is about the vanishing American frontier. The thrown-together buildings look scraggly and unkempt, the homesteaders are modest, stubborn, and reticent, but, in their undreamed-of future, Wal-Mart is on the way."

    I’m not familiar with the novel, so I can’t rate the film as an adaptation, but as a standalone film, it’s solid. Dano is good, a strong dramatic role. And I also want Daniel Day-Lewis to live forever and for the galaxy to be named after him, and for a church named after DDL to be created and I will go there Translated to English

    Watched

    9/10. One of my favorite films. Simply a magnificent adaptation of the novel, excellent direction and simply incomprehensible performances by Daniel Day-Luce and Paul Dano. It perfectly reveals its message about religion and misanthropy, I highly recommend watching it. Translated to English

    Watched

    A gorgeous picture revealing the essence of the struggle between capitalism and religion, in which capital removes the bonds and in the finale, with the last blow of the pin, itself becomes a new religion. In addition to the excellent central performances, the film shines visually and with Greenwood’s score. Translated to English

    Watched

    Film-mood. Two people and two sides of the same coin. Hiding behind the bright side, a "positive" character irritates the intestines even more than someone who does what he wants. With such a rating and number of awards, there is no desire to watch the movie once and again. Translated to English

    Watched

    Brilliant, but viscous and merciless. To patiently watch the GG rot for 2.5 hours is a feat. I won’t dare to do it a second time Translated to English

    Watched

    A straightforward drama about another "Scrooge" with powerful acting. The conflict between religious obsession and the desire for wealth shows the closeness of these concepts. Arrogance and self-interest are evident everywhere. But faith at least consoles us with exaltation after death. Translated to English

    Watched

    Actor’s benefit performances by Day-Lewis and Dano are somewhat boring, but with a good aftertaste, and Anderson’s memorable epic drama. Yes, it was difficult to watch, but it was worth it. Strong direction by Paul Thomas Anderson. A beautiful film with a good ending. Translated to English

    Watched

    Against the background of the religious events in the film, Anderson managed to make the Devil himself out of the main character. Translated to English

    Watched

    Oil is like a religion. Lewis and Dano’s characters put their hands on their throats and force them to look them in the eyes. That state when it’s hard to watch, but you can’t tear yourself away-a gorgeous performance. The story of loneliness and what is called: "If you drown yourself, drown others." Translated to English
