Paul Thomas Anderson

Pauls films are all beautiful, the camera work and set design is always as stylish as his storytelling. Whilst his films may not be academic in nature, I feel that most times he does not underestimate the intelligence of his audience. The way in which he tells his stories leaves a lot to the viewer. The story is clearly there but it is not spelled out in capital letters.

To be honest I have a feeling that boogie nights was a big FU to everyone in general. It says, yes I can make a main stream movie filled with violence,comedy, action, porn, catchy 70’s tunes etc and I can make it better than all of you wannabes that are doing it to be cool.

I enjoy his film making style immensely and PTA is definitely one of my favorite storytellers of all time.

My favorite PTA films in order of preference:

The Master

Punch Drunk Love

Boogie Nights

There will be blood

Sydney

Magnolia

    1. Thats good to hear. If you click the word directors instead of the drop down menu you will find many more. I thought that set up may introduce problems for readers. Pta was a favorite of mine and I do enjoy his work 🙂
