I last saw this film as a naive, innocent college student. Watching it again, 15 years later, I discovered that Daniel Day Lewis' character does have an actual arc, and real human emotions, as opposed to being a straight up sociopath, if you watch the film closely. The father-son material hits me very differently now. Time has also made this Paul Thomas Anderson film even better, in comparison to our current film scene (and to the detriment of Paramount Vantage, rest in peace). A surprisingly fun movie to revisit despite its bleakness, this is one of my favorite films of all time.
