I finally got my butt into gear today and went to see Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood. I liked it, but I'm still not entirely sure what I think of it. BUT as I was watching the final scene in the bowling alley I couldn't help but think that Daniel Day-Lewis' performance as Daniel Plainview was reminding me of someone else. It wasn't anyone with the last name Huston as many others think. And it was just that final scene.
On my way home I kept thinking about it and realised it was the voice and the way Day-Lewis spoke. So it kept going through my mind, and then I was doing a chain of quotes hoping a word would trigger it and, voila, the "I hate everybody" line lead me to "I hate this place", which lead me to "it's the smell" and then I had to figure out what the hell that line of dialogue from what.
And then I figured it out.
Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith in The Matrix! And then I was kind of confused because that's so random, right?
But, yes, the movie? Hmmm. B+...?
