the back of the case, Paul Thomas Anderson says "This is
'Boogie Nights'!" in such and exciting manner.
Obviously, the young director is proud of this DVD. He definitely
should be. The Boogie Nights New Line Platinum Series DVDs is
one of the most in depth, well done, and highly entertaining
DVDs available today.
movie begins as Eddie, a young busboy (Mark Wahlberg) with a
rather large gift, is recruited to be an adult film star.
Initially, he is not interested in the job, but after a rough
argument with his family, he abandons his old life and takes on
a new persona. The persona of....Dirk Diggler, the
womanizing stud with loads of charm and a large... uh... friend
to boot. Within months Dirk is a star. He wins awards left and
right, makes hundreds of movies, makes tons of friends, and of
course, makes loads of money. Nothing can touch him.
Slowly, though, his career begins to deteriorate as his fifteen
minutes of fame pass.
Dirk story line is interwoven with at least a dozen others to
make an emotional maze of insane entertainment. One of the most
exciting storylines is the one involving William H. Macy and his
characters wife, which leads up to an amazing climax.
movie is definitely the best of it's kind (as if there are any
other porn industry dramas out there). It is one of the most
well directed, well acted, well written movies I have ever seen.
Plus Heather Graham is naked for a few sweat inducing seconds.
Two of the best seconds of my life.
Perfect. Absolutely nothing to improve. It is beautifully done!
music is perfectly intercut with the dialogue in an amazing
by Paul Thomas Anderson:
is a truly interesting man. This is one of the best commentary
tracks around. Definitely a treat!
Deleted Scenes with Directors commentary:
awesome addition. It's surprising that even such a lengthy film
can have deleted scenes.
Michael Penn Music Video 'Try':
It's just a video nothing special. But of course it is welcome
on any DVD
The John C Reilly Files:
have to see for yourself. These are some of the greatest...
uh... things I have ever seen. I can't say anything or else it
will ruin their greatness. Definitely get it, even if only just
for this feature, get the DVD!
DVD is perfect. There is nothing wrong with it, and
nothing could've made it better. Even if you have the
original DVD, please do not miss out on this new updated
version. Purchase it now, or live in shame forever.
