    I started crying when Philip Seymour Hoffman came on screen and my friend had to pause the movie both to laugh at me and to make sure I didn't miss anything.

    Great movie. Definitely can't review on first watch.

    This is embarrassing, but I am only now watching this is one sitting from start to finish. What a film, it's everything the hype leads it up to be. The script, the cast, the editing, the music. Just everything. It's a shame that Wahlberg only seldom does great work like this, he's so much better of an actor than most give him credit for.

    Paul Thomas Anderson is a great director and he works an ensemble cast better than almost anyone. Keep an eye on the directors that actors kill to work with. They’re onto something. This is his most mainstream film and that’s saying something, given it’s about the 1970s porn industry. It’s not a film you watch with your grandma (well, depending on your grandmother I guess) but it is a captivating dark tale. Burt Reynolds has distanced himself from the film…

    Embalado por escolhas inspiradas de canções para trilha sonora, Paul Thomas Anderson explora a linguagem cinematográfica (longos travellings seguindo personagens percorrendo o cenário, planos detalhe, jump cuts, ação espelhada em paralelo) para contar a história de um pessoas ligadas primeiramente pelo trabalho na indústria pornográfica mas que acabam se tornando uma grande família.

    I don't know why, but I decided to re-watch Magnolia and this film tonight. I had a good night.

    Great movie! I wish I was part of their crew in the 70s. Heather Graham is so hot.

    Where to begin with Boogie Nights! First of all the film is all around amazing with an iconic cast of characters that you will love, some you will hate. The characters are all very well developed and are fun to watch on screen.But thats what makes them believeable! You really have to hand it to paul Anderson for this compelling piece of work, it grabs you and at no point does it let go. I also like some of the…

    I finally did it, and it was just as glorious as everyone had described. No longer can my reputation be questioned due to my never having seen this PTA gem.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film has been on my watchlist for a while, because I am someone that is fascinated with the pornographic industry. I'm fascinated with what it is now, and what it was in the past. And as someone who has read up on a lot of the history of porn production, I was kind of expecting at various points of this film for it to be incredibly cheesy, and to just go with random porn stereotypes that are now associated…

    A masterpiece — the storytelling, camerawork, acting, editing, music, everything, all of it is amazing. More importantly, the story is exhilarating and heartbreaking, and it packs an unbelievable emotional wallop. It also contains, for me, one of the most memorable scenes of tension of all time, the one which does for "Sister Christian" what A Clockwork Orange did for "Singin' in the Rain".

    The only little flaw, if you want to call it that, is that in the second half…
