    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…

    It's astonishing that Paul Thomas Anderson was a mere 26 when he filmed Boogie Nights. It’s an endlessly confident picture from a young, zealous film aficionado who was ready for his creative voice to be heard with his second film. The movie introduced many to the grand director that is Paul Thomas Anderson, one of the most revered directors of the past 20 years and likely my own personal favorite. No director today injects more enthusiasm about cinema within my bones than the great PTA.

    This is technically the second time I've seen Boogie Nights (the last Paul Thomas Anderson film I had to watch to complete his filmography), because two weeks ago, when watching it for the first time, the secondhand DVD I had bought cut out after two hours. So, I bought a new DVD, and yesterday I sat down and watched it from the very beginning.

    Boogie Nights is roughly in the middle if you're ranking Anderson's work; below it are The…

    Anyway, to the point which is yes, PT Anderson is a self-absorbed pretentious egomanical fuck. But yes, in all the pretentiousness he makes movies that I really appreciate. I appreciate BN less than Magnolia, but much more than the first time I saw it. Like I needed to see Magnolia to appreciate BN. Hard Eight is still a travesty. So let's not make animal sacrifices at his and Fiona's door, let's just look forward to his next flick even if…

    Gloriosa la manera en la que está ejecutado el clímax de esto, gloriosa. Muy memorable como todo se va a la mierda y entra el caos en cada uno de los personajes; los conflictos que de un momento a otro llegan para terminar de tumbarlos de la cima o hundirlos más en la miseria con ese guiño incluido por el mismo Anderson: "Long Way Down (One Last Thing)".

    De más está decir lo divertida y entretenida que es Boogie Nights…

    PTA fully displays his effortless, almost alarming, movie-making ability whilst also introducing such themes as family, insecurity, and that elusive American dream that appear time and time again in his films. Watching this again, particularly after recently viewing his other films. you can't help but notice a certain immaturity; his trademark ideas are not yet fully fledged, and there is an unfortunate decision to add a few bloody, violent scenes that I found to be redundant and off putting. Still a great coming out party.
