Boogie Nights — October 2017



Luke, Tito and Will discuss “Boogie Nights,” Paul Thomas Anderson’s epic story about the rise and fall of porn star Dirk Diggler — and the rise and fall of the porn industry itself. The 1997 moving picture stars Mark Wahlberg, Julianne Moore, Burt Reynolds, Don Cheadle, John C. Reilly, William H. Macy, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Heather Graham. Are porn stars members of society, or do they ostracized from it? How has that changed since the setting of the moving picture?

Up next in November, Will recommends “The Founder,” which is available on Netflix. It’s a biopic of Ray Kroc, the businessman behind the expansion of McDonald’s into what we know of it today.
