Watch: Get Close With Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Boogie Nights' In This Supercut

Boogie Nights

“Boogie Nights”

New Line Cinema

Had history turned out differently, Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “Boogie Nightsmight’ve gone straight-to-video and we likely wouldn’t have seen one of American cinema’s finest directors deliver movies like “Magnolia,” “There Will Be Blood,” and “The Master.” But early reviews saved the movie, it was released to great acclaim, and here we are nearly 20 years later, still appreciating the film. 

Today brings yet another perspective on the porn world picture, with Justin Barham‘s “Close-ups, Objects, etc.” And the title says it all. It’s a quick, but fascinating look at all the tight shots in PTA’s movie, and, even across two minutes, it becomes quite apparent how these moments that usually get lost in the fabric of movie are actually essential in tying it all together. So get in your shaggin’ wagon and watch below. Warning: probably NSFW.
