It's also freaky how much Day-Lewis looks like Hitler.

that is a cat

edit: hitler was not a cat

edit edit: also that cat appears to have a "part" in the middle and we all know that hitler didn't part his hair in this manner

edit edit edit: here is photographic proof that hitler was not a cat:



notice that he is a human being with human features and very much not a cat

edit edit edit edit: a piece of hitler trivia: he was a nazi (also he painted pictures and wasn't nearly as bad as people make it seem)

Hitler was also a vegetarian, which he abruptly became following the suicide of his neice (whom he was rumored to have fancied).  Albert Einstein was also a vegetarian, and a Jew.  Hitler hated Jews (actually, he wanted to have them all killed or at least out of areas governed by the Third Riech, if you can believe that--some don't).  But if Hitler and Einstein had dinner, they would for sure not have meat.

Lots of prominent Americans (including Lindbergh) around the time that There Will Be Blood takes place in thought that Hitler was a great and visionary leader for having pulled Germany out from its economic depression.  Perhaps the Day-Lewis character would have felt the same way, and even modelled his own facial hair after "der Führer."  Of course, Hitler's American supporters did not yet realize that Hitler wanted to kill all of the Jews.

Hitler himself was Austrian, not German, and his "Aryan" heritage was questionable.

THEREFORE... um... yes.

All this Hitler talk has made you all blind to the obvious:

does anyone know for certain that the character has a shaved head or is it possible he's wearing a wig?

I had a dream that this movie was ultimately released under a different title and direct-to-video.  Now that's a nerdy dream.
