“The Dirk Diggler Story” (1988) dir. PT Anderson


OK, you PT Anderson and “Boogie Nights” fans out there … this is where it all started. This is the 31+ minute early version of “Boogie Nights” Anderson directed in 1988 when he was 18 years old called… what else … “The Dirk Diggler Story.” Not the greatest or smoothest film you’ll ever see, but still pretty interesting as this is how the modern Stanley Kubrick started out. To paraphrase George Carlin’s character at the end of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure”: “(Anderson) does get better.” Not safe for work.
