A list formed with the deliberate intention to shake-up top100 list making standards, The Times placed There Will Be Blood at #2... right after Casablanca.

http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/related_features/top_100_films/

It's a pretty un-interesting (although pleasing to read) list but highly preposterous for the There Will Be Blood ranking.

The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil’s rain we’ll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, ’cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, ’cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put ’em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put ’em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls

Susan Sontag and the ending of TWBB:

I can't help but think of Kubrick and noticed someone else already mentioned him in the comments.

Tarantino reviews There Will Be Blood (10 min vid)

WARNING: calls him "Longview"
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Robert Rodriguez must be sad to learn that Quentin likes PTA better than him.

I disagree with the whole Brando vs Clift comparison. It just doesn't relate at all. Even if it did, Tarantino is barely in the top 10 alive directors while PTA is in the top 3 to 5 on any sensible person's list. So...

I guarantee the only reason Quinton reviewed TWBB is to get the 5 or 6 of us that are here on this site off of his back. GUARANTEED.

The question is, did it work?
