    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    I'm watching Hard Eight. First PTA film I've ever watched. Great film. I wish more of his movies were on Instant Viewing.

    There Will Be Blood is on it I believe.

    I think Punchdrunk Love MAY be on it as well.

    AND WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

    Also I wanted to start at the beginning. PTA strikes me as a director who's work you have to view all the way through from start to whenever their finished.

    Well, enjoy yourself. Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and There Will Be Blood are all probably in my top 100. Boogie Nights in my top ten.

    And just when I start thinking Madman can't baffle me any more than he has, he pulls out a trump card like this. I don't know how it's possible to be on a site dedicated to movies for the past decade and to never have gotten around to seeing any PTA films. But kudos, you have some damn fine cinema on your docket.

    1. There Will Be Blood
    2. Punch-Drunk Love
    3. Magnolia
    4. Boogie Nights
    5. The Master
    6. Hard Eight

    Like E, the top 3 are top 100 quality and the next two pretty close to masterpieces. He's the best American filmmaker alive, no question.

    I just never got around to it. On my defense I only seriously got into film my freshman year of college. That explains some of it.

    Well, either way, at least post your thoughts afterwards. I look forward to film buffs seeing PTA for the first time ever.

    I remember Boogie Nights for the first time. I actually came across it midway, expecting mostly porn, and coming across the donut/roller girl/truck scene, and realizing the movie was a masterpiece off that scene alone for a whole different reason. I finished watching it, and caught the encore of it at 1 AM, and watched it all the way through.

    Then I watched it once more the next day.

    On the other hand, he now has the opportunity to watch his filmography in chronological order.

    How many of you started with Hard Eight instead of Boogie Nights?

    Cool. I will be bumping old threads of course. I will consider a directors thread maybe. The site's userbase isn't what it used be.

    Not a PTA fan. Probably my least favorite director next to Terrance Mallick. I hate most of his movies with the exception of Punch Drunk Love and Boogie Nights.

    With PTA I'm most interested in how Inherent Vice is regarded after the general critical rhapsody over The Master. It feels like it could elicit a general Coen Brothers Fargo-to-The Big Lebowski mourning in the moment, and that fallout after "big themes" films intrigue me.

    Anderson and Phoenix are fascinating together, I will say. Much prefer his 2000s work to his '90s work, which feels too indebted to earlier directors.

    So I was looking at PTA filmography just now to put in my 2cents/rankings and came to a couple realizations: A) I thought he did more films, looks like there's only 6 full length films so far and B) The Master was PTA? I missed that note, I'll move it up my need to watch ASAP list.

    Also, I don't love all his films, but really appreciate them:

    1. Magnolia = top 10ish

    2. There Will be Blood = very good
    3. Boogie Nights = Good(?) Haven't seen in forever, needs rewatch

    4. Punch Drunk Love = Did not enjoy when I saw it, due a rewatch. Good Sandler acting.

    5. Hard Eight/The Master/Inherent Vice = Still to come(?)
    *coming soon*

    Top 100
