i’m thinking about there will be blood again tonight.

There’s one moment in particular that I’m still thinking about.

That is the moment when when Paul Sunday is trying to hack a deal with Daniel Plainview. Plainview says that in order to complete this deal, Paul has to proclaim “i am a false prophet; god is a superstition.”

So the camera cuts to a frontal angle. Paul’s face fills the screen as he makes the proclaimation repeatedly, louder and louder, at the encouragement of Plainsview.

Sheesh. Talk about subliminal.

I remember moments from films when I was a child that planted images in my mind that I simply could not forget. That image is planted in my mind and you simply cannot forget it.
