This sweeping epic about the treachery and hardships that plagued the American oil industry in its early days earned P.T.A. a couple award show appearances. But all you need to know is that Daniel Day-Lewis killed it and he will drink your milkshake. No pause.

The main character Daniel Plainview was modeled loosely on famous oil man Edward Doheny and his characteristics were based on Count Dracula.
