PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN: AN ACTOR’S ACTOR
Double Feature!
BOOGIE NIGHTS / HAPPINESS
BOOGIE NIGHTS
1997, Warner Bros., 155 min, USA, Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson

Eddie Adams, aka "Dirk Diggler" (Mark Wahlberg), is a high school dropout-turned-porn star whose career is on a dizzying upward trajectory thanks to the guidance of adult-movie kingpin Rick Horner (Burt Reynolds). As Eddie and the adult industry descend into the excesses of the late ’70s, devastating personal narratives unfold against a historic shift in America’s cultural landscape. Both intimate and epic in tone, this sprawling ensemble piece is populated by superb actors (Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, William H. Macy) whom Anderson guides with masterful, Altmanesque care.


HAPPINESS
1998, Strand Releasing, 134 min, USA, Dir: Todd Solondz

Happiness is in short supply in the Maplewood family: Oldest sister Trish (Cynthia Stevenson) learns she’s married to a pedophile (Dylan Baker), middle sister Helen (Lara Flynn Boyle) is fixated on an obscene phone caller (Philip Seymour Hoffman), and youngest sister Joy (Jane Adams) is alone. With Jon Lovitz, Louise Lasser and Ben Gazzara.
