A nice movie about people who believed in sexual liberty, but, almost all of them had a bad end. The movie show the good and nice side, but also the drug, the mental illness, and very sordid things like pedophilia of a generation, baby boomers, who thought that it was possible to enjoy without hindring.

Expresses sex as a form of art.

Boogie Nights was made by the same director of Magnolia and it also has a very similar cast. I loved Magnolia so expectations were very high for me to love Boogie Nights. I did love it but didn't like it as much as Magnolia but it was better than There Will Be Blood. I mean, yeah the film is about pornography and adult entertainment but it has a message. And that message is that being a porn star ... read more

A very good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago, I was really eager to check it out again. Anyway, before ‘Magnolia’ and ‘There Will Be Blood’, it was with this movie that Paul Thomas Anderson started to get some deserved attention. In fact, even though his following directing efforts are usually better regarded than this movie, I still really love this movie. To be honest, ... read more

"13.1. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Olen oikeastaan aivan rakastunut Boogie Nightsin kerrontaan, tekniseen toteutukseen ja etenkin sen katseluun. Helposti ja mieluusti katselisi useamminkin, ihan jo koska 2,5-tuntinen elokuva on katsottaessa kuin puolituntinen. Nousu ja tuho (+ kaikki ei olekaan ihan päin persettä -lopetus) -tarina vain on vähän liikaa esikuvissaan kiinni ollakseen riittävän omaperäinen ja näin voidakseen kokonaisuutena nousta sille pykälälle, mitä sen välitön nautittav"

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If Boogie Nights is your favorite movie...You are fascinated with all things Diggler, but, more importantly, with all things 70's. And clearly, the best and most fascinating thing about this film - aside from its simultaneous depth and levity regarding the industry - is the absolutely groovy and perfect soundtrack. Further, the filmmaking is superb; you are especially fond of unique scenes/shots, such as A) walking through the door twice; and B) that firecracker scene - quite possibly the greate"

“'Boogie Nights' is more than a great film even, it's fantastic and more worthy of even more praise than it already gets.

What is immediately impressive after finishing is how it tackles the subject matters of pornography, disco and drugs, very difficult subjects to portray in any media without being too trashy or causing offence but 'Boogie Nights' manages to make a film that commits neither of those things (even with the sex and drug abuse being prominent, they all have their full impact without being over-the-top or trivialised) and instead make one that's interesting and entertaining as well as disturbing and emotional. Few films that include even one of these subjects have succeeded in doing that so well.

It looks stunning for a start, with an imaginative surreal to” read more
