The guys head to the grimy cesspool known as San Fernando Valley for this week's podcast on Paul Thomas Anderson's 1997 film, Boogie Nights. They talk about the film in relation to the rest of PTA's work, how it stands out in establishing a bonafide modern-day auteur, and the crazy array of talented actors that make up the lovable band of dick-swangin' buddies. They also discuss who would be able to reshape this classic if it were to be remade, which actually turned out way easier than you'd think.
