It's the first time seeing it in 5 years. I must say that the first time I saw it, I was bored as f*ck. Upon revisiting, it was quite a treat. Despite not being a horror movie, Daniel is a pretty scary guy. "I drink your MILKSHAKE!!!"
The ending of the film, where Daniel says "I'm finished" sounded pretty familar.
In my opinion, TWBB would make a perfect companion piece to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. Aside from the clear influence Kubrick had on P.T. Anderson, both films are about men whose ambitions to be greater lead them to paths and eventually in the long run blacken their hearts and go insane. One is a business tycoon, the other is a writer. Both have rocky relationships with their sons, H.W. (Daniel's son) and Danny (Jack's son).
