There Will Be Blood
Where there is oil, there is greed.
Set in the early years of the previous century, as the oil boom was taking off, this movie chronicles one man's relentless drive to succeed, and the price he pays. Starting out as a simple silver miner, our hero turns to oil, and builds his business to become a huge empire. Along the way he becomes exceedingly wealthy, but has no personal life to speak off. The more successful he became, the more evil he committed, driving him to seek redemption by whatever means possible. The film won two Oscars and another 40 awards. At the time of writing, it is at number 30 on the IMDB's Top 100 list.
