The Classics – Boogie Nights

I think it’s safe to say that this is the best movie about the porn industry ever, right?

Now there is a lot of great things about this movie. The Soundtrack is fantastic. Burt Reynolds owned the movie with his Jack Horner character. The team of Marky Mark and John C Reilly…or should I say Dirk Diggler and Reed Rothchild was a great team to watch on screen(There whole attempt to make a record together was some very funny stuff). Rollergirl was smokin. SO much to like in this movie.

And it’s all due to the Director Paul Thomas Anderson. A guy who clearly is a Martin Scorsese fan. Every one of his movies is dripping with Scorsese influence. And that’s OK. If your going to be influenced by someone, might as well be the master himself. Paul Thomas Anderson, besides making Boogie Nights, also made collection worthy movies in Magnolia and There will be blood. And while I might like those two more than I like Boogie Nights, Boogie Nights is certainly the most fun of the three.

I am not a professional reviewer at all,  so here is a paragraph from someone who is… “a startling film, but not for the obvious reasons. Yes, its decision to focus on the pornography business in the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s and ’80s is nerviness itself, but more impressive is the film’s sureness of touch, its ability to be empathetic, nonjudgmental and gently satirical, to understand what is going on beneath the surface of this raunchy Nashville-esque universe and to deftly relate it to our own … Perhaps the most exciting thing about Boogie Nights is the ease with which writer-director Anderson spins out this complex web. A true storyteller, able to easily mix and match moods in a playful and audacious manner, he is a filmmaker definitely worth watching, both now and in the future.”

    Fun, hilarious, fast-paced, and overall just a great piece of cinema. I never knew what their intentions were with this one, but whatever they were, they did a good job with it. Check out my review when you can!
