I would like to talk about the similarities between the person I chose to read about for my book review project, John D. Rockefeller, and the main character, Daniel Plainview, in one of my favorite movies, There Will Be Blood. Supposedly, a reporter once asked John D. Rockefeller (at the time the richest man in the world) how much money was enough, to which Rockefeller replied “It’s always just a little more than you have.” I think this statement is completely accurate with everyone, regardless of their financial status. While some, such as John D. Rockefeller and Daniel Plainview, desire greenbacks more than others, I think everyone wouldn’t mind having more money to work with. Similar to Rockefeller, Daniel Plainview has a burning passion for extracting oil because more oil equals more profit. Also likewise to Rockefeller, Daniel Plainview started off small; from finding a small amount of silver in a mine shaft to eventually running an oil empire. Another similarity between the two is they both would do anything to make money, even if that means being deceptive and misleading. Both of them are exceptional entrepreneurs in the oil industry.
