“Everyone’s blessed with one special thing.”
Paul Thomas Anderson’s immediate classic probes the porn industry and how it changed with the flip of a decade. When director Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) sets his eyes on busboy Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) at a nightclub, he sees his next porn star. He has Rollergirl (Heather Graham) take him for a spin, and quickly brings the newly named Dirk Diggler into the fold. Thus they set out to make meaningful, artistic movies that are about more than money-shots. Little did they know what the 80s would have in store – with the almost immediate transition to home video the sex gets sleazier, the breasts grow bigger and the drugs get harder. With moments like Alfred Molina in a wide-open silk robe, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman barely able to contain his lust for Dirk, Boogie Nights is completely unforgettable.
