Boogie Nights is an excellent picture. You don't have to have be a part of the whole 70's scene either to appreciate it. The title is very misleading to some who do not generally read reviews beforehand. This movie is an exhilerating piece on a late 70's-early 80's porn star. Yes, it sounds like a very simple plot and much gratutious sex. But it's so much more. While you may be thrown off by the violence and the sexuality Boogie Nights is nowhere near pointless. It features great acting all across the board-even Reynolds is very sympathetic. Some advice though, seeing this movie more than once is a good idea. It grows on you. This movie takes you to the deep down threshold of your heart. It shows you the rise of a porn star and the downhill spiral that follows it. Even in some of the sleaziest of characters can a human being be reached out to. Rent this one tonight - and who cares about all that talk about the use of prosthetics anyway. This is the pulp fiction of the 70's porn industry, "a low class subject made in a high class way".

One of the things that I like about PT Anderson, is that he has theguts to take talent that most people push to the side or have pushed to theside and makes them stars. Case in point, a washed-up... Burt Reynoldsdelivers a great performance in this film. And if proving Adam Sander can bea great actor (Punch Drunk Love) wasn't enough... here comes MarkWhalburg... like you've never seen before.
I think many people pass up "Boogie Nights" cause they are anti-porn, orjust flat out hate the adult industry and can't overlook that aspect of thisfilm. But underneath that is a great story about characters losingeverything and battle to regain themselves. There is a beautiful film... andit's too bad that enough people see that.
Paul Thomas Anderson's stylish and compelling take on the 70s pornindustry follows Eddie Adams, aka Dirk Diggler (Mark Wahlberg), throughsix years of sex, drugs and disco. His chance meeting with pornographydirector Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) starts his career as one of thegreatest adult actors of the time. Dirk's character is based onreal-life porn actor John Holmes, who, like Dirk, was renowned forbeing extremely "well-endowed". This is where Dirk finds initialsuccess.
The main themes in Boogie Nights are the obvious ones relating to afilm of this genre; pornography, drugs, sex, betrayal, violence andmusic. Boogie Nights deals with the pornography theme with somecontrol. It is not overplayed and the sex scenes are surprisinglyminimal, but mentally explicit when they take place on screen.
Throughout the film cocaine is abused enormously, and the film'ssetting, Los Angeles 1977-1983, reflects the popularity of the drug atthat time, which the film captures perfectly. However, Boogie Nightsdoes not promote cocaine, as there are some scenes involving addictionand overdoses. For example at Jack's party, they find a girl who hasrecently, and graphically, overdosed; blood pours from her nose and shebegins an unconscious fit. The film, before this scenes, has beenfairly upbeat and comic, but from this point it foreshadows thedarkness that it will occur.
The music scenes are executed brilliantly, from superbly-staged discoscenes to a down-and-out Dirk singing terribly in his new music career.The soundtrack too is excellent, featuring tunes from The Emotions,ELO, The Beach Boys and the unforgettable Sound Experience. Thestandout scene in the whole film comes down to the music; Dirk, ReddRothchild (John C. Reilly) and Todd Parker (Thomas Jane) visit drugdealer Rahad Jackson's (Alfred Molina) house in order to make somequick cash from selling phoney drugs, but Night Ranger's SisterChristian, which is playing in the background, increases the intensityof the scene incredibly, proving that music can bring so much moredepth to a scene. Boogie Nights is filled with those kind of scenes,which makes the film even more fantastic.
The standout performance in Boogie Nights is Burt Reynolds as theenigmatic, yet moody, film director. In the scene where he attacks ayoung guy for slating his movies, it is a complete shock for theaudience, because before this point he has been pretty mellow andcontent. Other notable performances are Julianne Moore, Heather Grahamas the beautiful Rollergirl, John C. Reilly, and Mark Wahlberg, whodelivers the performance of his career.
Boogie Nights is also a surprisingly original film, using common themesbut filmed in its own sharp and realistic way. Anderson's approach hasbeen fully captures these characters in a time when nothing seemed tobe going wrong, or at least until the 80s arrive. From then on, thingsturn very dark indeed, and all signs of the recognisable characters andsituations from the first part of the film have gone. This does not,however, reduce the high level of engaging entertainment that this filmoffers.
Boogie Nights was not a box-office success, earning only £2 million atcinemas in the UK. But this is not the film's, or the director'sconcern. Anderson recognises quality, not popularity, which is evidentin his three other films, Hard Eight, Magnolia and Punch-Drunk Love. Iwould recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a simple parable filledwith excellent and variable situations, because at the end of this filmyou will realize that Boogie Nights is a simple morality tale, but onewhich will stay in the mind days after you watch it. Boogie Nights isat once shocking, hilarious, devastating and both visually and audiblyoutstanding.
