    Bad? No. Flawed? Yes.
    The other businessmen and Christians were nice people. Daniel and Eli were dicks.

      The other oil guys tried to tell him how to raise his son. Hardly nice. Probably why Daniel MADE A DEAL WITH UNION. ON THE PIPELINE.

      The only remotely good people in the whole film are Daniel's foster son and the girl he ends up eventually marrying. And they are like background extras when it comes to their impact on the story and other characters

        What was the name of the rancher that wasn't letting them drill on the land but he would allow Daniel to drill if he attended services? That guy seemed good.

    Overrated movie. It does not hold up well upon second viewing. And Paul Dano out acted him. It was as bad as that time Sean Penn won for Mystic River and not Tim Robbins.

    Was the point of this movie that capitalism has outstripped religion in its role in establishing power and controlling people? Or did nepobaby just see an excuse to cast mr oscarbait and win some awards?

    Also, in spite of itself and what the film is trying to do, the film really ends up showing the unavoidable positives of capitalism, which are many. Daniel is not a broken butthole because of capitalism, nor does he "embody" capitalism in some negative way. Rather, he provides a good of real, objective value which literally extends life, and he works with people who take calculated risks in an effort to better themselves. He also gives back to the community not out of the goodness of his heart (no one really does this, deep down) but rather because he has a rational understanding that it's necessary to get on with the community, and one way to smooth things over with them is to help them and do good works for them (the schoolhouse, speaking plainly with them). Although damaged through his relationship with Daniel, H.W. ends intact as a human being, and has his own business, which he's learned for himself.

      >H.W. ends intact as a human being
      I'm sure becoming a raving drunk and murderer is being an "intact human being."

      • 2 weeks ago

        Yes, actually, and this is shown clearly in the film. If you had understanding of human beings you'd see it in the character. H.W. had the good fortune to go to a good deaf school (on daddy's dime, it must be said), clearly formed a trusting relationship with his speaker, got married with a good prospect of having a family, has money of his own, and has his own business. He confronts and ultimately rejects Daniel, and this breaks Daniel because H.W. was pretty much the only person he really ever grew to love.

        H.W. was obviously damaged, but his person and psyche survive the events of the film. Daniel's do not. Also, H.W. was not the drunken murderer. You seem to have poor reading comprehension.

            Yes. His life outcome was objectively vastly better than it otherwise would have been, even taking into account his deafness and being raised by an butthole. Enterprise in goods of real, objective value, and the possibility of owning private property with the protection of the state made that possible.

      The irony of applying this remark to Daniel is that it applies more accurately to Eli. When Eli uses vague language to confide his temptations and sins to Daniel in the end, he is distraught, but doesn't actually say what is going on. This strongly implies Eli's homosexuality.

      Just because Daniel was abused by dad as a kid didn't automatically make him gay. Rather, it made him an angry misanthrope.
