    Both Neo-Westerns
    Both came out in 2007

    Both regarded as masterpieces and modern classics as well as both considered to be among the greatest films of the last 20-25 years.

    But which among the two is the greatest film???  Let’s settle this for once and for all.

    Vote and comment.

    NCFOM has more repeat value.

    I always found TWBB overrated.

    There Will Be Blood is the superior girl.

    There Will Be Blood is fantastic but No Country is perfect. Obviously No Country.

    TWBB loses the narrative thread and becomes a bit silly in the last part, whereas No Country continues to deepen as it goes along.

    No Country. It’s deep, tense and defies convention in so many ways. TWBB is a perfectly executed film that did almost nothing for me.

    There Will Be Blood is overrated AF.

    At least No Country For Old Men keeps us psyched from start to finish.

    There Will Be Blood.

    There’s a lot of engaging themes to unpack with this one.

    There Will Be Blood is fantastic but No Country is what I would call a masterpiece.

    FYC:

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    No Country is a masterpiece plain and simple and ages like fine wine.

    I’ve grown to respect TWBB. It still comes off a bit unnecessarily stilted yet overheated. For me that approach worked better with The Master, which is still the only PTA movie I love.

    I don’t adore ‘No Country’. It’s still a borderline great movie for me though. And it holds up well with repeated viewings.

    No Country by a lot in my opinion. The only thing great about Blood is Daniel Day-Lewis’s purposely repugnant performance.

    What The Master is awful with a non existent script.
