Boogie Nights Reviews

Margaret A. McGurk
Cincinnati Enquirer

Director Paul Thomas Anderson is unsparing with his deluded characters and their giddy, chaotic age -- but he is never cruel.

Combustible Celluloid

If it weren't for the porn, drugs, and violence, this would be an ideal movie to take the kids to. It's all about belonging, and sticking with your family.

Boogie Nights features an impressive ensemble cast, and there's not a supporting actor whose performance is less than impeccable.

With Boogie Nights we know we're not just watching episodes from disparate lives but a panorama of recent social history, rendered in bold, exuberant colors.

A well-crafted, well-acted entertainment but one that doesn't dig too deep into its subject.

Cinema em Cena

Os diálogos são afiadíssimos, e Paul Thomas Anderson permite que seus atores se sintam livres para interpretar, sem preocupações com questões técnicas.

Boogie Nights is a shockingly well-made film.

March 5, 2002

Anderson, a director who makes no secret of his admiration for both Scorsese and the similarly iconic Robert Altman is clearly talented but here, rather than being his own man, he only succeeds in flattering his idols.

I want to write a long essay on this because it's a complicated film experience but it's really great! The acting is great, the review (this one) is poorly written

The film is bemused and entertained, as we are, by this pack of sexual extremists, and the eye it casts on them is both benevolent and wry.

Laramie Movie Scope

A searing indictment of not only the adult entertainment industry, but the whole value-free Hollywood lifestyle of the late 1970s and 1980s. At the same time it has a certain sympathy for its characters.

I understand what Anderson is trying to show -- that none of these folks are likely to meet with a good end -- but the last hour or so of the film drags on and on, violently and eventually pointlessly.

With fewer characters, tighter editing, and a more focused story, it would have been much more palatable and enjoyable. At the theater I was in, the audience all looked exhausted when they left.

This film is proof positive that there should be an Oscar for ensemble acting.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

On top of some preposterous and near-fatal plotting errors, Anderson makes the mistake of creating too many characters (supporting stars Graham and Cheadle don't get enough to do, while William H. Macy is wasted for the sake of a punchline).

Cautionary story-telling rarely gets this grim, electrifying and compelling.

Austin Chronicle

Boogie Nights at heart is the story about a group of characters and the de facto family that emerges from their relationship. A stunning ensemble of actors is essential to creating this seamless world.

What makes this film transcendent is Anderson's vast talent and the sheer exhilaration of his vision. Each of us is blessed with one special gift and Anderson certainly has discovered his.
