In advance of the release of THE MASTER on 16th November, the new film by Paul Thomas Anderson starring Philip Seymour Hoffmann, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams, Light House Cinema Smithfield has announced screenings of all of Anderson’s films over two weeks in November.
Starting on November 4th with HARD EIGHT, Anderson’s first film, the season includes some of the most popular films of the last decade: PUNCH DRUNK LOVE, THERE WILL BE BLOOD, MAGNOLIA and BOOGIE NIGHTS.
A remarkable debut, this savage and shady gambling drama stars Philip Baker Hall, John C. Reilly and Gwyneth Paltrow as people on the cusp of the Reno gambling community, a world dripping with menace. Thoroughly engaging, beautifully articulated and undeniably Andersonesque, this is a rare opportunity to see this criminally overlooked gem on the big screen.

Paul Thomas Anderson, burst into the mainstream with his film about the world of 70’s porno. With a stellar cast, a thumping soundtrack and the auteur’s knack for seeing into the souls of his characters this is glossy enough to be seductive and dark enough to steer clear of shallowness. Glitter, disco, cocaine and sex, this is the definitive film about the excesses of the period and it is told handsomely and with enormous skill.

Everybody’s connected and everybody’s got their problems… that’s the thesis behind Magnolia, a heartfelt, stylish and moving film about a day in the life of a seemingly disparate group of people in L.A. With what might just be the best ensemble ever created, Magnolia became an instant classic upon its release and proved to the world that PTA was a brave and creative force to be reckoned with.

After a long hiatus, Paul Thomas Anderson raised quite a few eyebrows by casting Adam Sandler in this dark romantic comedy. However, fears were soon allayed when the film was released to rapturous reviews and both star and director proved that everyone benefits from a little experimentation here and there.

THERE WILL BE BLOOD
From gambling to porn to drama to rom-com and then to western! Daniel Day Lewis won an Oscar for his performance as the Daniel Plainview, a vicious oil man in the early 20th Century. With luscious cinematography and a terrifying soundtrack from Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, this is a portrait of a man, of a period, and of a culture is best admired big and loud on the silver screen
