The rise and fall of porn-star Dirk Diggler, his sizeable schlong and the '70s sex industry itself.
Its world lovingly captured with snaking camera angles that hit every time (panning jerkily around a disco, spying furtively through the viewfinder of a porn cinematographer, split screens etc.) Boogie Nights is loaded with lascivious colour, poisoned with lacerating traumas and pumped full of wit. Better than sex. Very nearly.
