Daniel Day-Lewis and Anderson filming 'There Will Be Blood' (2007)
Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Thomas Anderson filming There Will Be Blood (2007)

The very first film, I had to fight to finish. It was baptism by fire. I learned all the lessons I needed to learn on the first film, about protecting myself and how to keep a lock on the editing-room door.
