Boogie Nights vs. There Will Be Blood

The Canon #85July 11, 2016

This week, Devin and Amy pit “Boogie Nights” against “There Will Be Blood” to determine which Paul Thomas Anderson film deserves a place in the Canon. They dissect Mark Wahlberg’s “everyman” sexuality and discuss what about PTA makes his actors do their best work during their take on “Boogie Nights.” Then they dig into “There Will Be Blood,” during which they praise the contrast between Paul Dano and Daniel Day-Lewis and examine the duality of Daniel Plainview’s final words. Head to the Earwolf forums to cast your vote on which movie should be inducted into the Canon!
