Yeah, this was amazing. Pretty much once-in-a-lifetime (or maybe a half dozen times since they've performed it a few by now) cinematic experience. Not sure I've seen the movie in 4 years or so either and holy shit, does it hold up. As I said on Twitter, THERE WILL BE BLOOD: Still the best movie since THERE WILL BE BLOOD.

I'll always have a soft 'n sentimental spot for Maggie & Boogie but this is probably his best movie, right? I guess everyone agrees on that now. Thing I never really noticed until you see it with an orchestra waiting silently is how little music is actually in this movie. It's so striking whenever it does appear that it really stands out but there are long passages of dialogue with no score and yet the movie still just flies by.

As for the experience, I was able to settle into the movie pretty quickly and just watch (the aforementioned long stretches of no music in the beginning help with that) and the mix between the dialogue/sfx and live music sounded great. If you hadn't seen the orchestra, I'm not sure you would've been able to tell it wasn't just coming from the soundtrack. There was no 'live' weirdness. PTA was likely there (he was the night before) but prob skulking around the back not wanting to be seen (and I didn't see him). It must be a thrill to see something like this come together though.

The venue is beautiful and I can't think of too many cinematic experiences to top this one.

Maybe in a couple years, Tarantino will get an orchestra to play all the bits of music he lifts from other soundtracks live or something? Can't imagine that he's not jealous of something like this.

A few more pics.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Does anyone here recall reading about Austin Lynch having shot a behind the scenes documentary during the production of TWBB? I guess it is unlikely to surface now, unless the film is released as part of the Criterion Collection.

I WAS THERE TOO

Welcome to the first episode of I Was There Too with Matt Gourley. The show where Matt will talk to people who were present in the great scenes of cinema history. Mayor of podcasts Paul F. Tompkins joins Matt to discuss his role as Mr. Prescott in the film There Will Be Blood. Paul tells us how he got to know Paul Thomas Anderson through the Largo comedy scene and about the strange noises Daniel Day-Lewis makes in between takes. Plus, Matt talks about the people who were originally cast in There Will Be Blood in a segment called I Wasn’t There Too.

It's like they made this just for us.

Last thing I remember reading about this alluded to Paul having scrapped it because he didn't think the production was particularly interesting.

On this week's Slate Culture Gabfest, they discuss choosing the perfect title, and titles that changed before a thing was released. Their guest brings up There Will Be Blood as an interesting title that she feels uneasy about:

Has anybody seen Roeg's Eureka?

It seems like it has more than a few similarities to TWBB. Like a good Roeg it looks baroque and intense.
