The Single Greatest Scene in Film History. Ever.
As hyperbolic as the title of this post may seem, in my opinion the film scene I’m about to present to you lives up to that statement completely. I was going to do a list of the Top Ten Greatest Scenes in Film History, but when I sat down to do a list I realized there were SO many that it was impossible to cut it down to ten. I’ll keep trying, but for now here is The Single Greatest Scene in Film History. Ever. The movie is There Will Be Blood, and this is the haunting final fifteen minutes. If you haven’t seen the film, please watch the whole movie now. Please. You will not regret it, and hopefully you will agree and understand the importance and brilliance of this scene. For those who have seen the film, here’s another chance to recapture the raw emotion and brilliance delivered by Daniel Day-Lewis, who does more in his performance than any other actor could ever hope to achieve. Draaaaaaiiiiiiinaaage, Eli, you boy!
So, what I want to know is… what’s your opinion? Leave a comment on what you thought of my choice and tell me what you consider to be the greatest scene/s in movie history.
Thanks for reading.
