The Industry’s Finest

[WARNING! EXPLICIT CONTENT] Boogie Nights is perhaps the greatest pornographic movie ever made. Or at least the best movie about the porn industry. I mean it was nominated for three Oscars. So why is a movie about bad actors who get payed to have sex so acclaimed. Well it just supports my theory that any movie can be great. As long as you have the following: good actors, good writing, and an understanding of the subject matter. Boogie Nights focuses on the golden age of porn in the 70’s. Followed by a darker more serious time in the 80’s. Every character is flawed in some way. Having their own individuals problems that stem from their involvement in porn. Some have drug problems, some have marital problems, and some have confidence problems. From what I know, Boogie Nights very accurately portrays what it’s like to work in one of the most controversial  of professions. I’m not even sure I’d say the movie has a happy ending. However, I will say that I don’t think pornstars are bad people. If they can get out of it, then I wish them luck, because nobody is beyond redemption.
