Summary: A multifaceted look at the porn industry in Los Angeles in the 70’s and 80’s, focusing on the journey of a young man (Wahlberg) from restaurant dishwasher to porn star and beyond.
"While it's very funny, Boogie Nights taps into something much deeper with its on-target depiction of the shifting political and social tides of the '70s and '80s and thoughtful relationships between characters. It's a deeply satisfying movie."- Keith Phipps, The A.V. Club
"With Boogie Nights, we know we're not just watching episodes from disparate lives but a panorama of recent social history, rendered in bold, exuberant colors. "- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Mark Wahlberg, in a star-making performance, has the kind of electric ingenuousness that John Travolta did in 'Saturday Night Fever.'"- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"With its ceaseless music, large canvas, shrewd casting and flawless ensemble acting and the dexterity of its whiplashing mood switches, the movie recalls Robert Altman's "Nashville" more than any subsequent movie has. "- Staff, USA Today
"Darkly comic, vastly entertaining and utterly original. "- Emanuel Levy, Variety
"He (Anderson) simply doesn't allow for dull moments, and his gifts for irony and showmanship are clearly appreciated by a collection of actors who have rarely been better."- John Hartl, Film.com
"From the second it begins, Boogie Nights seizes your senses and pulls you right in: no turning back, no time for debate, no regrets."- Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"A true storyteller, able to easily mix and match moods in a playful and audacious manner, he (Anderson) is a filmmaker definitely worth watching, both now and in the future. "- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"The pop 1970s were typified in part by cheesy fashions, ephemeral music and a regular diet of daring, cutting-edge movies that arguably made that decade Hollywood's richest. Blistering Boogie Nights recaptures the spirit of that time on all three counts."- Mike Clark, USA Today
