“There Will Be Blood”

No, you guessed it wrong. It’s not some kind of pessimistic prediction for post-presidential election Armenia I am writing about. It’s about film which I saw over weekend in London in the run-up to British equivalent of Oscars.

Set up mainly in early 20th century, this is the most powerful film to come out in recent years to depict religion leader’s hypocrisy in contemporary world, contrasting it with brutal inhumanity of emerging oil businesses and questioning who is the real prophet? – business interests, money… Daniel Day-Lewis with his brilliant performance in “There Will Be Blood” won today prestigious British Academy Film Award for leading male role.

Watch it, you won’t regret it.
