Boogie Nights 1997

Everyone has one special thing.
Set in 1977, back when sex was safe, pleasure was a business and business was booming, idealistic porn producer Jack Horner aspires to elevate his craft to an art form. Horner discovers Eddie Adams, a hot young talent working as a busboy in a nightclub, and welcomes him into the extended family of movie-makers, misfits and hangers-on that are always around. Adams' rise from nobody to a celebrity adult entertainer is meteoric, and soon the whole world seems to know his porn alter ego, "Dirk Diggler". Now, when disco and drugs are in vogue, fashion is in flux and the party never seems to stop, Adams' dreams of turning sex into stardom are about to collide with cold, hard reality.

Boogie Nights was fantastic. Beginning with an incredibly virtuosic opening oner, the interweaving storylines that follow are all interesting and well-told. It has a great ensemble cast to flesh out the engaging characters, with particularly good performances by Wahlberg and PSH, while an amazing soundtrack adds to the atmosphere of the 70s and 80s. It's incredible PTA managed to pull off a movie with such sweep with just his second feature.
