Reviews
Mine: Very powerful and intense movie. Just plain amazing performances by the entire cast. Can't wait for Paul Thomas Anderson's next movie. Physically tiring movie. Not for the faint at heart!
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Extraordinary, intense re-creation of life among a "family" of pornographers in the San Fernando Valley, from the late 1970s through the early 1980s. Wahlberg plays a disaffected 17-year-old with no brains but a formidable sex organ who becomes a porn-movie sensation; Reynolds is perfect as the director/paterfamilias who makes him a star. Writer-director Anderson deliberately doesn't judge his characters, but makes them--and their actions--seem utterly real. Tough going at times, but gripping and funny as well. Panavision.
