When you put an amazing ensemble cast together with incredible tracking shots together with a fascinating story, you get Boogie Nights.
PTA really really really likes tracking shots.
The story is about a young man has a gift, his gift gets him praises. He uses his gift to get into the porn industry in the 70's. This is the story of him and his gift. When I finished watching this movie I didn't know what to think of it. but for a while I came with the words to say about this movie and that it amazing. this movie has a big cast and all of the actors did a outstanding Job in they roles.
Boogie Nights - I am not the biggest fan of Paul Thomas Anderson "I know film making sacrilege" but I was bagoogleated not just from the sex but the dark intense and humorous story that follows Jack spots Eddie now known as "Dirk Diggler" every move in his new trendy roller coaster porno life. Amazingly filmed, sad, intense, invigorating and out of control. There is not much more to say about this film apart from it been great, and fantastic seeing all the well known actors a little younger especially Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
I'm putting in a new policy for myself; I'm not gonna give any movies 10/10 before I've seen it twice. The reason is that a movie gotta be extremely good to get a 10/10, and I can't possibly get all the full impressions after only seeing it once.
Boogie Nights is under this category. Tarantino's explanation for Boogie Nights being his favourite P.T. Anderson movie, right in front of There Will be Blood was that he prefers Boogie Nights informalities…
Focuses more on the characters rather than the story which some viewers would argue detracts from the film. In this case, I disagree.
What I learned:
The only think I can think to put is 'Marky Mark has a big dick'.
Following his low-key debut Hard Eight, Paul Thomas Anderson staked his claim to auteur status with his ambitious pornography and family epic Boogie Nights. Set in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the story of young porn star Dirk Diggler and his adult movie "family" upends convention, as Anderson non-judgmentally captures the spirited possibilities of '70s hedonism before it passed into a nakedly acquisitive, coke-fueled Reagan-era hell. Along with the period music, costumes, and décor, Anderson's bravura technique harks back…
Still hilarious. Still gets dark as fuck. Still a masterpiece.
Average Score: 2.7/5

Definitely one of my favorite movies of all time.
I would consider "Boogie Nights" one of the five best films of the 1990s. At the tender age of 26, P.T. Anderson shows an uncanny Scorsese influence. The editing, the camera movements, the virtuoso acting.
I could write a term paper on this movie, and I've seen it at least 20 times. Ultimately, it's about a fractured family of misfits, a point that is brought home in the finale. I'm going to have to do a more in depth review of this movie someday, but if you haven't see it, just see it. It's an incredible cinematic triumph.
