Top films of Paul Thomas Anderson by LMdC

Of the many young directors that made films in the last 15 years, Anderson is one of the few that has the talent and the mastery to make entertaining masterpieces. He is the perfect blend of the heritage of Martin Scorsese and Robert Altman as long as Erich von Stroheim and Orson Welles. There Will Be Blood stands as one of the greatest films of all time as it is now in my Top 10. His use of camera movement reminds of the greatest films of Jean Renoir and Max Ophüls. His next film, The Master will be in theatres in 2013, until then let’s take a look at his already rich filmography.

1. There Will Be Blood (2007)
2. Boogie Nights (1997)
3. Magnolia (1999)
4. Punch Drunk Love (2002)

I still need to see Hard Eight aka Sydney (1996), The Master (2013), Inherent Vice (2015)

  1. The only one of Anderson's films that I thought was truly great was There Will Be Blood. I felt it should have won the Oscar over No Country for Old Men.

    I liked Boogie Nights, but didn't love it. Punch Drunk Love didn't do much for me. I disliked Magnolia quite a bit. I have not seen Hard Eight.
