BoogieNightsBoogie Nights is the fictional story of an emerging pornographic film star in the 1970s, played by Mark Wahlberg, whose special talent is discovered by director Jack Horner, who wants to elevate the adult film industry by making more artistic films.  As the idealistic director, Reynolds portrayal is near perfect. Wahlberg also gives a superb performance as the up-and-coming Dirk Diggler.  Set design, music, costuming and great dialogue give this film an incredibly realistic look and feel. While there are a number of serious themes which underlay Boogie Nights, there are a good many amusing moments which provide some entertaining relief (Klaus Ming November 2009).

    Fun, hilarious, fast-paced, and overall just a great piece of cinema. I never knew what their intentions were with this one, but whatever they were, they did a good job with it. Check out my review when you can!
