Paul Thomas Anderson writes and directs this US drama starring Mark Wahlberg. In the 1970s disco era, 17-year-old high school dropout Eddie Adams (Wahlberg) is working in a nightclub in California and looking for a break when he is spotted by veteran adult film director Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds). Horner invites Eddie to stay at his lavish home in the San Fernando Valley and rechristens him as Dirk Diggler and makes him a star of adult cinema. Eddie enjoys a hedonistic lifestyle on the strength of his new-found fame, but by the 1980s his popularity is on the wane, as video takes over from film and the porn industry loses its innocence.
From writer/director P.T. Anderson comes the turbulehnt behind-the-scenes story of an extended family of filmmakers who set out to revolutionize the adult entertainment industry in the seventies. Idealistic producer Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) has always dreamed of elevating his films into an art form. When he discovers young actor Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg), Jack begins to turn his dreams into reality. Under the stage name of Dirk Diggler, Eddie soon gives the adult entertainment world a star the likes of which it has never seen. But the rise to fame has its costs, and soon Dirk finds himself sliding down the slippery slope of sex, drugs and violence. The only question: can he get himself back together before it's too late?

Some people think this was based on John Holmes, although there may be parallels, it cannot be as Dirk Diggler makes comments about Holmes' movies during the film. See "Wonderland", which was based on Holmes's life.
I will add, however the music soundtrack is amazing, one of the best Ive heard. Totally captures the era.
I just bought this again from Amazon after all the reviews of the BlueRay being remstered, I wondered if the newest release DVD was too............and it is !!!!!!! Yay !!
Much clearer, more colourful and sharper picture. Its a pity they dont tell you these things in the review, but my gamble paid off !

Have tried to watch this a second time but still find it sickening. The sad and tawdry side of humanity.
