Generally unpleasant look at the life of an unscrupulous oil man and his relationship with his adopted son and an evangelical preacher with whom he crosses swords.

Towering performances from Day-Lewis and Dano and the epic scope of the feature fail to take away the bad taste left from the material. A good antidote for any of you out there that think that the oil business might be peopled with good Samaritans and patriots.
