Overstreet reviews There Will Be Blood

Jeffrey Overstreet’s review of There Will Be Blood has just been posted on Christianity Today. And yeah, he likes it a little bit:

There Will Be Blood is a masterpiece. While it’s dedicated to Altman (who died in late 2006), Blood feels more like a collaborative effort from Stanley Kubrick, Terrence Malick, Peter Weir, and Francis Ford Coppola. And the film’s bizarre finale is 100 percent Anderson — a plunge into the unexpected that will bewilder and divide viewers. Decades from now, cinephiles will still be passionately debating this film.

The CT review is abbreviated, however: the full-length review will be posted to Looking Closer soon.
