Dir Paul Thomas Anderson
With Mark Wahlberg, Julianne Moore, John C Reilly, Burt Reynolds
Dishwasher Eddie Adams (Wahlberg) works at a nightclub in 70s LA – until his impressive talent is uncovered and he becomes Dirk Diggler, the poster boy for porn. This is a rise-and-fall story of a performer caught up in a cycle of fame and dependency, and provides an irresistible take on LA’s underbelly as the industry hurtled towards the video age.
