Some were cold or indifferent to it, but most of the viewers I spoke to after last night’s Castro theatre screening of There Will Be Blood were either very approving or admitted to having been powerfully moved. Consider the cheers and applause that greeted the closing credits. Here‘s my final interview of the night with a huge fan. And here‘s a longish recording of several people offering various reactions. (Sorry for the ambient wallah-wallah, which makes it difficult to hear some of what’s being said.)
