1997. USA. Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson. With Mark Wahlberg. 155 min.
Swept into the 70’s adult film scene of sunny San Fernando Valley, a well-endowed dropout becomes porn star “Dirk Diggler” – but finds the fantasies he lives on screen can only last so long off-camera. Drugs, sex, and sleaze collide with heartbreaking melodrama in this epic portrait of the rise and fall of the golden age of porn.
