There Will Be Blood is ‘top movie of decade’

Film experts have named the brutal Oscar nominee There Will Be Blood as the greatest film of the decade.

The 2007 period drama about a driven, single-minded oil prospector in the southern California oil boom was chosen by critics from Total Film magazine.

The film starred Daniel Day Lewis, for which he won a best actor Oscar, although it missed on the best film Academy Award to No Country For Old Men.

The magazine's writers sifted through the decade's releases to find the most notable films of the past 10 years for the new edition which is on sale on Wednesday.

Also in their choice of the most iconic movies were Batman caper The Dark Knight which was named ‘blockbuster of the decade' and 2001 sleeper hit Donnie Darko which was crowned ‘cult of the decade'.
