Thanks to Sirdan I have been able to see the 2007 movie There Will Be Blood directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and starring Daniel Day-Lewis, who is just superb. It is beautifully done but more than a tad melodramatic. The religious elements were, I thought, ham-fisted. See what others thought on the IMDB site. The DVD includes a fascinating documentary on the US oil industry — made in 1923.
The other DVD came from Surry Hills Library, and a very peculiar movie it is: Pulse (2006), directed by Jim Sonzero, but one of the writers is the famous Wes Craven (Nightmare on Elm Street).
It had its moments, but I don’t regard either my computer or my mobile phone at all differently after the experience… 😉 It is apparently a remake of a 2001 Japanese movie: see DVD Pick: “Pulse” and Pulse has dark images and an original scary concept.
