Trivia

  • While on location in Marfa, Texas, No Country for Old Men (2007) was the neighboring film production. One day, Paul Thomas Anderson and his crew tested the pyrotechnical effects of the oil derrick fire, causing an enormous billowing of smoke, intruding the shot that Joel Coen and Ethan Coen were shooting. This caused them to delay filming until the next day when the smoke dissipated. Both this film and No Country for Old Men (2007) would eventually become the leading contenders at the Academy Awards a year and a half later.

Quotes

    • Plainview: Are you an angry man, Henry?
    • Henry Brands: Where's his mother?
    • Plainview: I don't want to talk about those things. I see the worst in people, Henry. I don't need to look past seeing them to get all I need. I've built up my hatreds over the years, little by little. Having you here gives me a second breath of life. I can't keep doing this on my own... with these, umm... people.
    • [laughs]
    • Henry Brands: About what?
    • Plainview: Are you envious? D'you get envious?
    • Henry Brands: I don't think so. No.
    • Plainview: I have a competition in me. I want no one else to succeed. I hate most people.
    • Henry Brands: That part of me is gone. Working and not succeeding- all my, uh... failures has left me, uh... I just don't... care.
    • Plainview: Well, if it's in me, it's in you. There are times when I... I look at people and I see nothing worth liking. I want to earn enough money I can get away from everyone.
    • Henry Brands: What will you do about your boy?
    • Plainview: I don't know. Uhhhh, maybe it'll change. Does your sound come back to you? I don't know. Maybe no one knows that. A doctor might not know that.

In terms of excitement, imagination and rule-busting experimentation, it's a gusher.
