"In 1977, Sex was Safe, Pleasure was a Business, and Business was Booming."
An outrageous epic that throws the covers back on california's adult entertainment industry in the swinging seventies. It's a touching and often humorous portrait of a most unusual family of filmmakers, brought to dazzling life by an all-star cast and sizzling seventies soundtrack.

"A stunning and powerful film.  Desson Howe, Washingtopn Post
"Four stars!  Jack Matthews, NewsDay
"...shockingly funny and thrillingly original...  Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"...a sprawling masterpiece of a movie.  Rogert Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...well crafted, well acted...  Shlomo Schwartzberg, Box Ofice Magazine

Editor's 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.

ReelViews 9 of 10
In his new film, Boogie Nights, writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson takes us back to the disco era, and, by following a small group of characters, recreates the rise and fall of "artistic porn" and those who participated in it...With Boogie Nights, Anderson has realized the potential he showed in his previous feature, Hard 8 (which featured John C. Reilly and Philip Baker Hall, two members of this movie's ensemble cast). Boogie Nights is a dramatically rich and visually arresting motion picture that has earned (and is deserving of) comparisons to the films of Robert Altman. Anderson takes risks with this movie, few of which fall short. (One of these is the pointed and sure-to-be controversial final shot -- a perfectly conceived and framed statement about the de-humanizing effects of the porn industry.) The result is a memorably penetrating motion picture. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 10 of 10
Boogie Nights is not only an amusing and moving film about a group of actors, producers, and directors making pornography in the '70s and early '80s, it's also a sublime and intelligent microcosmic representation of the changes that took place during that time...Though Anderson doesn't directly refer to any of these factors in his film, Boogie Nights superbly conveys how these inevitable societal shifts play out for his characters. Though the young director (he made the film when he was 27) has a fondness for going over the top with the tragic moments (a significant flaw of his subsequent film, Magnolia), the film's flair and knowingness more than make up for this small weakness...One of Anderson's greatest gifts is how well he works with his actors. Every single performance is excellent, almost as if each performer were inspired by the caliber of the others to reach for something even greater. If there has ever been a finer filmic ensemble, I am hard-pressed to remember it. - Rod Armstrong
