I loved this movie, and I often go out and buy the screenplays after watching a movie of this caliber. I would have given this book 5 stars if not for one small problem, while incredibly well written, it looks as though someone merely took the script and shrunk it down to size. The writing is incredibly small, almost impossible to read. If you can get past this small quarrel, than you're in for a real treat.

This movie is not just about the porno business. It is about the 1970s, from bellbottoms to disco and how a group of individuals who love sex but come from dysfunctional families find community with each other.It touches on how these people were caught up in substance abuse and had trouble raising their own families. It also touches on how the financial and business sectors frowned on or discriminated against them.

I knew even before I saw the movie that I would love it. And I was right. It is one of my favorites. Paul Thomas Anderson is at his best--he is one of the most promising directors of the next century. This movie is important because he doesn't show the case for or the case against this family of pornographers and drug users--he shows them as people, and lets us make our own opinions about them.

Format: Paperback
P.T. Anderson has made the best film of 1997 and here is the best original screenplay to it. Reading it, you'll see that P.T. Anderson is one of the greatest writers today and successfully communicates the ups and downs of the wild 70's boogie nights. It was obvious from his first film, "Hard Eight," that we were in the presence of a natural-born filmmaker.

It's like the movie... but in book form. The font's a little small compared to other screenplay books, but it's still readable.

I now divide the world into two types of people: Those who are able to appreciate this movie.... and those who aren't. If you did like it, odds are you loved it. If you loved it, you should buy the screenplay, so you can take it with you everywhere. It is my bible and my model of excellence I strove towards.
