(1997, 35mm, USA, 155m) dir Paul Thomas Anderson. 25TH ANNIVERSARY: High-school dropout Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) transforms overnight from washing dishes in a nightclub to becoming ‘Dirk Diggler’ when he’s discovered by porn director Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds). It’s the 1970s, the adult film business is booming, and Dirk soon becomes a huge star thanks to his hunky good looks, youthful charm and… other assets. Having run out on his estranged mother and stepfather, Dirk’s filmmaking colleagues become his new family. There’s Rollergirl (Heather Graham), Amber Waves (Julianne Moore), ‘Little’ Bill Thompson (William H. Macy) and his best pal and co-star Reed Rothchild (John C. Reilly). But life can’t stay all pool parties and disco beats forever as the 1980s arrives and the industry begins to change forever.
