I made a video on this film 4 years ago and planned to re-upload it after some copyright issues, but after re-watching the film I knew I had a different perspective to share on the film 4 years later. For me, There will be Blood is a masterful character study with ‘Family’ as its most important theme. So much happens in the film but Daniels relationship with his son HW is the heart of the film. This video essay digs into all the characters, how they interrelate and how they affect each other. I really enjoyed re-visiting the work of Paul Thomas Anderson again!
