Apocalypse Now and There will be Blood are one of the few movies that I need to rewatch on a regular basis. The acting in both of these is incredible.
About There Will Be Blood, there are so many details, so much of symbolism and nuanced characters, that it's such a joy to watch it just for the sake of the actors' performances.
Also, if you liked Apocalypse Now be sure to watch Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket if you haven't already.
To add my short review, Mel Gibson's newest movie, Dragged Across Concrete was so bad I couldn't finish watching it. I really wanted to like it because I think he didn't deserve all the media demonizing him, but I have no idea how he went from making masterpieces like Apocalypto and Passion of the Christ to this one.
You can sense he's extremely bitter about the past years since almost every character in his new movie seems to think the same, have the same line of thoughts and have unnatural dialogues. The characters are flat and it's difficult to care for them despite the writers' best efforts to make us feel sorry for them. I couldn't watch till the end but the story was a let down.>>30053
