Default WOW ZOMGWTFBBQ Part II: new Paul Thomas Anderson trailer!!!

Jesus Christ are you serious? If you include David Fincher, Spike Lee, Terrence Malick, and Martin Scorsese, I think you could close out the list of the best American filmmakers working today with the Coen Brothers and this guy.

Boogie Nights is clearly a masterpiece -- throw in Magnolia, Hard Eight, Punch Drunk Love... can this guy do any wrong? I've been dying to see his new period flick with Daniel Day Lewis, and there's finally a trailer out. HOLY [censored]. This fall is going to be orgasmically good for movies and for me (since pretty much every director I adore is stepping it up this year):

Again, awesome. A movie by my wife's favorite filmmaker, whom I also love, that is thematically right up my alley. Huzzah!

Since you didn't do it:

1. Magnolia
2. Boogie Nights
3. Hard Eight
4. A Prairie Home Companion (w/Robert Altman)
5. Punch-Drunk Love

Well it's a bit disingenuous to put the Altman film in there (I don't know how many scenes he helped with, because it really does feel like everything is Altman's voice), but his career is too short to start ranking everything. I just think Boogie Nights is among the 50 best films ever made. I don't care if it's half Jonathan Demme and half Scorsese. It's amazing.

Looks pretty dang good. Seems like a role DDL can really sink his teeth in. I'm definitely there.

I stand by my contention that had Magnolia been a tight 90 minutes focused soley on the Cruise-Hoffman-Robards storyline it would be considered one of the ten best films of the last 15-20 years. But it was almost unbearable to me as released.

Boogie Nights ftw goes without saying, of course. I liked Punch Drunk quite a bit, but that may be due to having a thing for Mary-Lynn Rajskub. I'm really not a big fan of Sandler, Watson, or Guzman most of the time, and I also think it's a rare misfire from Hoffman, so PTA obvo did a fine job directing &amp; writing it.

Brad Pitt's Western "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford".

Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will Be Blood".

Sounds like an awesome lineup -- and you can add some flicks from Cannes that got buzz, like Silent Light (Reygadas) and 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days (Mungiu).

Boogie Nights is one of those movies that if I go a year or so without seeing it, I start to jones for it. I think Pulp Fiction and Boogie Nights are the two most entertaining films that have come out in my lifetime. (you forgot Tarantino on your list btw.) Thanks for the trailor.

Don't mean to hijack but you can't really consider Terrence Malick to be one of the best American film makers working today, can you? First of all, he makes about 1 film every decade, secondly, his body of work is simply above average. Anyway, I love PTA and this looks great.

I didn't see The Thin Red Line, but that given, I've seen everything else and he is incredibly far above average.
