The fact that Daniel could drink Eli's milkshake before destroying him physically is Daniel's psychological payback to Eli for having the audacity to believe that he was his equal in any regard, including salesmanship.

People call Daniel Day Lewis one of if not the greatest actor ever.One of the key things people forget about acting is that however great a performance is, it should land in a great movie for it to receive the universal acclaim.

It's true that Daniel Day embodies that of a Larry David persona so well when he spouts out his well sharpened dialog, just as Paul Dano's possessed man child voice frying gets under the skin so much that one cannot help but start giggling.

There Will Be Blood is often considered as his best film and his ultimate masterpiece and while I think it is without a doubt one of the very best films of the last 20 years and the work of a brilliant mind, I happen to love some of his other films just a tiny bit more.

Comparing the film to No Country for Old Men once again, both films were adapted from novels, and whilst I have no idea what either of them are like when compared with the two films I really do feel that Paul Thomas Andersons screenplay is superior to the Coen Brothers despite losing to it in that Oscar category, the dialogue for some of the scenes are masterful, particularly those of Daniel Plainview.

The only other PTA film I've seen is Boogie Nights, which sounds like a far cry from There Will Be Blood, and in many ways it is (although I did notice similar use of long takes of dialogue).
