    Boogie Nights is Raging Bull directed through the filter of Goodfellas with the ensemble cast of an Altman movie. In other words, it is brilliant. Like Raging Bull, it is about an immensely talented (yet emotionally flawed) man and his rise through the industry he works in. Boxing for Raging Bull, pornography for Boogie Nights. This is not just pure coincidence, PT Anderson is deliberately referencing Bull, and not just because he is a fan of the movie. The last…

    This is a film that just never really clicked with me, and it took Paul Thomas Anderson making a bunch more films for me to figure out why it doesn't click with me. This is a young director's film, and while sometimes that's the best possible thing a film can be, in this case it is not. Boogie Nights is a self indulgent film that is just a bunch of set pieces put together, set pieces that tie together loosely,…

    "Stop saying pornography! I am an actor!" ~ Buck Swope

    There's much to love about "Boogie Nights." The screenplay written by director Paul Thomas Anderson takes an original approach to a tried-and-true plot line: rise to fame, fall from grace. It's got an ensemble of up-and-coming young actors earning their chops, from John C. Reilly and Heather Graham to Mark Wahlberg and Philip Seymour Hoffman, plus Oscar-level support from Burt Reynolds and Julianne Moore. Plenty of sexually explicit scenes are…

    I don't know where to start. I loved everything about this movie, every character, every scene, every line of dialogue, every camera movement. Mark Wahlberg is amazing. God, I love P.T. Anderson.

    This movie is a journey. A sprawling epic of sex, drugs, and some seriously off-pitch rock n' roll, Boogie Nights is one of the few films I've ever seen that is, by all accounts, perfect. Brilliant writing, direction, and acting brought to wonderfully memorable and complex characters, this film is an epic for the ages, one that I'm shocked I haven't seen till now. An all-time favorite right away.
