There Will Be Blood - Your thoughts?

I differed with my brother vis-a-vis our thoughts on this film. He said that he couldn't bear the protagonist and found him to be repulsive and therefore did not want to see it again.

I on the other hand couldn't bear the protagonist and found him to be repulsive and therefore would like to see it again. I am fascinated by that which repels me. I want to know how it works and what it uses to justify its behavior. It seems in the case of TWBB the main motive is profit - and the principle of "The End Justifies The Means" ruled supreme in the film.
