In 1997, 27-year-old auteur filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson burst onto the scene with his sophomore feature film Boogie Nights, set in the seedy side of adult films during the 1970s and 80s as we follow a young man who rises to the heights of stardom before falling deep into the pits of drugs and obscurity. But does the film deserved the Academy Award nominations for screenplay and acting for both Burt Reynolds and Julianne Moore or should it have arrived dead on arrival? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris reveal all.
