A great movie

“Even though ‘Boogie Nights’ had made quite an impression (I really loved this flick as well), it is with his 3rd directing effort that Paul Thomas Andeson made his breakthrough.

Top 50 Film Characters (50 movies items)

"Officer Jim Kurring portrayed by John C. Reilly Jim Kurring is a lonely police officer and most definitelty the most likeable character of the film and one whom you can empathise with the most. In a 3 hour film full of richly illistrated characters, Kurring is ulitmately the most realistic. Best Moment Talking to a streetwise young boy"

" Note : Paul Thomas Andeson is one of the best directors around and this is his best movie so far. Fascinating characters and stories, amazing directing, all actors give very good perfomances (Tom Cruise is maybe insane but definitely can act). I loved it."
