BOOGIE NIGHTS

Part of PTA/DDL.

In the San Fernando Valley in 1977, teenage busboy Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) gets discovered by porn director Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds), who transforms him into adult-film sensation Dirk Diggler. Brought into a supportive circle of friends, including fellow actors Amber Waves (Julianne Moore), Rollergirl (Heather Graham) and Reed Rothchild (John C. Reilly), Dirk fulfills all his ambitions—but a toxic combination of drugs and egotism threatens to take him back down.

“If you've never seen it in a theater, the moment of anticipatory darkness before the blazing title fills the screen (not to mention the unbroken three-minute shot that follows) is one of the reasons movies were invented.” —Jim Ridley, Nashville Scene (Mar 12, 2009)
