great movie

on 4/4/2012

Solid cast, Marky Mark is quite the actor, I don't know if all porn directors are as nice and concerned about their "actors" as Burt Reynolds portrays , but it's almost got a warm family feel to it. Of course they portray the down side too, the drug abuse, violence and sloth. But, porn is almost mainstream now, some of the porn stars are making it in popular movies, and have become household names without the stigma. After all, it's a business first and foremost. Enjoy!

Editors Note
Note It's Los Angeles, 1977, and adult film director Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) meets Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg), a well-endowed dishwasher in a nightclub. Jack recruits Eddie to be his newest star and Eddie, hungry for fame, quickly agrees, changing his name to Dirk Diggler. Soon Dirk is the hottest star in the porn industry, alongside Rollergirl (Heather Graham), a high school dropout who never removes her roller skates, and Amber Waves (Julianne Moore), the veteran star who pines for the son she's not allowed to visit. On the fringes, Little Bill (William H. Macy) fumes while his wife cheats on him in public, and Buck Swope (Don Cheadle) tries to escape the stigma of being a porn actor. The good times roll, but before long Dirk falls victim to the pressures of stardom and a drug habit that ruins his career while Jack struggles with porn's conversion from film to cheaper videotapes. Director Paul Thomas Anderson's breakthrough film is an exhilarating ride along the underbelly of the 1970s inspired by the films of Altman and Scorsese, featuring colorful camera work, a dynamic soundtrack, and excellent performances from the entire cast, most notably Reynolds in an Oscar-nominated comeback role.
Plot Summary
Summary Director Paul Thomas Anderson's second film is a sprawling, polyphonous drama set in the seedy greater L.A. porn scene during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Reviews
Entertainment Weekly Ranked #2 in Entertainment Weekly's "10 Favorite Films of the '90s" - "...Bravura....An ecstatic act of filmmaking..." 04/01/2000 p.159,"...[A] wild, virtuosic, ecstatically outrageous epic....Mark Wahlberg comes through with his first full-scale performance: ingenuous, sultry, starmaking..." 09/26/1997 p.52-4
Sight and Sound "...A hilariously engaging and at times bleakly disturbing chronicle..." 01/01/1998 o,36-7
USA Today "...With its ceaseless music, large canvas, shrewd casting, flawless ensemble acting and the dexterity of its whiplashing mood switches, the movie recalls Robert Altman's NASHVILLE..." -- 4 out of 4 stars 10/10/1997 p.1D
