If you don't count P.T. Anderson's 'ghost directing' Robert Altman's Prairie Home Companion, Blood will be Anderson's first film since 2002's Punch Drunk Love with Adam Sandler. Back in June, I reported that the first teaser for the film had been released online, and luckily, after watching it, I feel justified in my good feelings about this flick. Sure, it has a Terrence Malick vibe, but I have every faith in Anderson as a director. Especially since the relatively small amount of films he has made rank as some of my favorites of all time. Blood was originally slated to be released in November, but has since been moved back to December 26th. So while fans (myself included) are going to have to wait just a little while longer, it makes perfect sense if you think about it. What better time to release a film about greed and faith than during the Christmas holidays?
