LOLTHEREWILLBEBLOOD

Saw There Will Be Blood last Thursday with Vadim. Met THND's Keith thanks to the Dark Prince and was told that the word to remember at the end of Blood is: milkshake.




This is sort of a spoiler, but in the sense that it is the single greatest line of the year next to No Country's lucky coin monologue.

And just how is Blood?

IT IS BLOOD-TASTIC! BREATHTAKING. WONDEROUS. IT MADE ME THINK OF STAR WARS OR SOMETHING LIKE IT. EPIC. WONDROUS. SPEELBOUNDING.

(my attempts at getting pull-quoted aside, it is awesome. There is one required point where PTA decides to ignore the obvious plot, go off on a half-assed family side-plot and wind up with Daniel Day-Lewis digging a hole in the ground. But it swings back in time for the "Baptism" scene. And holy lord, if that doesn't make you forget the wasted 15 minutes.)

Fun, important side note: never drink three cups of coffee before sitting down for a PTA film. You're going to miss at least five minutes of dialog during the whole "wasted 15 minutes."

edit: photo is totally stolen from Glenn Kenny.
