Since I’m huge fan of Paul Thomas Anderson, of course, I had to watch this movie at some point. Apparently, this directing debut was not exactly a pleasant experience for Anderson as he had not much control over it (something that would change from his next movie) and he had to fight really hard to make sure that it wasn’t completely butchered before it was released. Anyway, even if it wasn’... read more

A weird fatalistic movie, with each of the characters plodding on with the predetermined destiny. It's film noir, right? Character's don't develop...they do whatever they were going to do. They just can't escape themselves.

It's captivating though. The opening sequence piqued my curorsity and I could tell exactly how the movie would end from the point the four main characters me... read more

John has lost all his money. He sits outside a diner in the desert when Sydney happens along, buys him coffee, then takes him to Reno and shows him how to get a free room without losing much money. Under Sydney's fatherly tutelage, John becomes a successful small-time professional gambler, and all is well, until he falls for Clementine, a cocktail waitress and sometimes hooker.

"25.3. Blu-ray Paul Thomas Andersonin esikoisohjaus näyttää hyvinkin Paul Thomas Andersonin esikoisohjaukselta. Keskittynyt ja mukavan viipyilevä kerronta hyötyy näyttävästä ja ilmeisen tarkkaan suunnitellusta kameratyöstä. Hahmot tarinoineen ja motiiveineen rakentuvat hiljaisesti ja onkin helppo uskoa, miten tämä voi turhauttaa jotakuta."

" Date: 8/3/2019 Viewed: Amazon Prime Re-watch Note: This was Paul Thomas Anderson's first movie and it is still awesome. This is his most underrated movie that he has done since this movie gets overshadow by his other movies in my opinion. The acting is great and I love the story. I love all the characters in this movie because they are memorable and you care on what happens to them. Also, the movie moves very nicely for a movie that is 102 minutes. The movie felt like it didn't go that quic"
