This may or may not be a leftist film, depending on how you look at it. However, the hostility towards both a religious man and a businessman lends me to believe this film leans Left. We see the worst of the Christian and business world in what can be described as a “progressive” caricature of each. That being said, the conflict between the two main characters (Eli and Daniel) is extremely thought provoking (faith and ambition are pinned against each other). The final sequence where we get the “milkshake” speech is amazing and provides the perfect release of tension that has built throughout the film.

I referred this film to a Christian professor of mine who refused to see it due to the negative view of faith provided in the film (from what he heard). After finally watching it, he emailed me and said he loved it because the film, while hostile to how Eli exploited religion, works as a useful quest of redemption. The film gives us a lot to take in; it’s definitely worth more than one viewing. There Will Be Blood is a tantalizing character study as well as an atmospheric masterpiece.
