Rick Dabagian’s review:
If The Will Be Blood is 5 stars, and Punch-Drunk Love is 4 stars, then Boogie Nights is just below that. It's a good film but it overstays its welcome. The first half is great and it really shows off PTA's attention to detail and directing ability. But eventually the film starts to drag and veers off course, parallel to Dirk's own troubles. Maybe I just didn't like the mood/feel of that portion of the movie, but it felt weaker than the beginning.
I also thought the beginning was more fun and unique, while the rest felt like something I've seen before. And Punch-Drunk Love did so much better with the darker scenes that I didn't like as much here.
Next up is Magnolia and I'll be caught up on PTA in anticipation for The Master. Can't wait
