And the Best Film of 2007 Is...
The folks at Paramount Vantage were kind enough to set up a private screening for me of Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood this morning since it won't be released in North Carolina for another few weeks. And I was floored. It's absolutely amazing, one of the most soul-shaking films I have seen in a very long time. I was literally shaking when it was over. It's a masterpiece, pure and simple.
A full review will be coming in the next week or so as the film begins its national roll-out and makes it to NC screens, but it will be appearing at #1 on my official top ten list tomorrow.
Thanks again to the good people at Paramount Vantage, and a salute to Paul Thomas Anderson.
There Will Be Blood is one for the ages.
