What to watch on IFC: Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Boogie Nights”

Boogie-Nights-Starring-Mark-Wahlberg-09

Mark Wahlberg stars in "Boogie Nights" tonight at 8/7c

Dirk Diggler is in the house tonight when Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Boogie Nights” airs tonight at 8/7c.

Everyone’s blessed with one special thing and for Dirk Diggler (Mark Wahlberg) it’s an extra-long appendage and we’re not talking about an arm. Paul Thomas Anderson‘s epic porn fable chronicles the rise and fall of Eddie Adams, a.k.a. Dirk Diggler, a nightclub dishwasher discovered by legendary porn mogul Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds). Due to Diggler’s unique anatomy, he becomes a sensation in the world of so-called adult entertainment thanks to his good looks and considerable endowments. This coked up Cinderella story isn’t always a fairy tale, though. While it stays oddly whimsical despite its lurid and graphic content as Anderson explored his Martin Scorsese-style cinematic aspirations. While the Anderson-Scorsese mash-up makes for some stylish and excessive flourishes and a few wildly graphically violent scenes ,“Boogie Nights” is first and foremost the tale of a family, with Julianne Moore as Amber Waves, the sexy hot mess of a matriarch, and Heather Graham as the almost adorable, Rollergirl.

Watch the trailer, remember the glory and then tune in tonight at 8/7c for “Boogie Nights”:
