Boogie nights ($14) provides an apt portrayal of the Californian porn industry in the seventies and eighties. Directed and written by Paul Thomas Anderson, Boogie Nights stars Mark Wahlberg, Julianne Moore, Heather Graham, Don Cheadle, and Burt Reynolds. It chronicles the adventures of Eddie Adams A.K.A. Dirk Digger (Mark Wahlberg) as he tries to make his mark in porn. Dirk’s best friend is played by John C. Reilly and the two make a hysterical pairing. But the best role in the movie saw the career resurgence of Burt Reynolds as the caring but tough Porn Producer Jack Horner. He does everything he can to keep his stars from going off the tracks to little avail.
