A man who convincingly can play both Cecil Vyse of A Room with a View and Daniel Plainview of There Will Be Blood has my vote for an Oscar tonight. Daniel Day-Lewis is quality. And if you haven’t been to There Will Be Blood yet then please get a move on.

Sleek Mr Vyse

Daniel Plainview
Greedy Mr Plainview.

These two characters have only one thing in common. The moustache. And yet Daniel Day-Lewis manages to act both parts as no one else could have.

And here is a trailer for you.

    Even though I´ve already seen it a least a thousand times, I would love to see “A Room with a view” once more. But I honestly don´t think I would like “There will be blood”.

    Well, it is a very rough film, but it is an outstanding portrayal of an unlikeable man who you somehow have to agree with in his hatred of (false) religion and self righteousness. Not least since the film contains a very dark and hilarious sense of humour.
    I don’t know if you would like it, but it made an impression on me and Daniel Day-Lewis is a genius. The director is Paul Thomas Anderson who also made Magnolia…

    I did NOT like Magnolia!
