The 27-year-old Paul Thomas Anderson cemented his reputation as one of Hollywood's new mavericks with this look into the rise, fall and redemption of one Eddie Adams aka Dirk Diggler (Mark Wahlberg) in the hedonistic, drug-fueled '70s porn industry in southern California. Plucked from his job as a busboy by porn purveyor Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds, in an Academy Award®-nominated performance), Eddie's boyish naiveté quickly gives way to drug-induced arrogance as he spirals out of control. The ensemble cast includes Julianne Moore and Heather Graham as Dirk's frequent costars Amber Waves and Rollergirl, plus John C. Reilly, Don Cheadle, William H. Macy and Philip Seymour Hoffman — and Alfred Molina in a memorable turn as a coked-up drug lord and '80s power ballad fan. DIR/SCR/PROD Paul Thomas Anderson; PROD Lloyd Levin, John S. Lyons, JoAnne Sellar. U.S., 1997, color, 155 min. RATED R
