    I'm trying and failing miserably to find a fault to this film. Sure, it chronicles the rise and rise and fall of its protagonist. We have seen that before. Where this takes a step above the rest is the camerawork. Tracking shot after tracking shot after tracking shot. So perfectly realised that it effectively becomes its own character in this masterful work that chronicles seven, eight, nine characters in such detail that you just have to sit back and appreciate…

    Eddie Adams: Jack, I was thinking about my name, y'know?
    Jack Horner: Yeah?
    Eddie Adams: I was wondering if you had any ideas.
    Jack Horner: I've got a few, but you tell me.
    Eddie Adams: Well, my idea was, y'know, I want a name, I want it so it can cut glass, y'know, razor sharp.
    Jack Horner: Tell me.
    Eddie Adams: When I close my eyes, I see this thing, a sign, I see this name in bright blue neon…

    Very 70's-influenced, very inspired, and very entertaining, Paul Thomas Anderson's claim-to-fame is a modern classic that's less about porn than it is about family, although it's full of both. Everything in this movie works perfectly, and I mean everything. No dull moments, no pretense, no bullshit. It's the real deal. Mark Wahlbeg spins heads here (this and The Departed are his career bests) and Burt Reynolds gives an inspired performance as his director.

    Near-flawless storytelling, shooting and editing, with an amazing cast and great sound track. I don't remember when I've seen a film that so deftly blends serious drama with wickedly dark humor in such an effective way. Well, there's Goodfellas of course... in fact I think these two films hit a lot of similar notes. Both are riveting from beginning to end, two and a half hour films that just fly by, leaving you wondering where the time went. In the…

    I had one major qualm the first time I watched Boogie Nights, and that was the third act. I originally thought it was a bit far fetched, but it worked so much better for me this time around. Again, Philip Seymour Hoffman stole the movie.

    Paul Thomas Anderson is really dedicated to making it impossible to pick your favorite movie of his.

    I don't know where to begin. I just don't. I have been watching some incredible movies lately, but this might have just topped them all. Instantly becoming my favorite PTA film, Boogie Nights is a grand and ambitious canvas of sex, violence, and drugs; all set within a changing landscape of characters and ideals.

    Paul Thomas Anderson. Everyone, a moment of reverence for this masterful filmmaker. In my eyes at least, he's the greatest director working today. He is also,…

    Boogie Nights is a sharp, well directed film, which tackles bold themes with great confidence. Unfortunately, the results aren't always as unique as one would desire, though for all the plot's down points and lulls, there is a great deal of social commentary, filmed in a way that keeps you invested all throughout.

    Boogie Nights is a dazzling and completely immersive film. I came in with high expectations and although it was everything that I thought it would be, I was still stunned by its magnificence. I cannot think of a single flaw. Everything was beautiful from the long Anderson-esque shots, to the fully fleshed out characters, to the superbly talented actors,to the music selections, to even the damn costumes.

    In my opinion Anderson really outdid himself with this one. I found it…
