In conversation with Haley Mlotek
Film critic Adam Nayman returns to KPL to discuss his latest book, Paul Thomas Anderson
Paul Thomas Anderson has been described as "one of American film's modern masters" and "the foremost filmmaking talent of his generation." Anderson's ﬁlms have received 25 Academy Award nominations, and he has worked closely with many of the most accomplished actors of our time, including Lesley Ann Manville, Julianne Moore, Daniel Day-Lewis, Joaquin Phoenix, and Philip Seymour Hoﬀman. In Paul Thomas Anderson: Masterworks, Anderson’s entire career—from Hard Eight (1996), Boogie Nights (1997), Magnolia (1999), Punch Drunk Love (2002), There Will Be Blood (2007), The Master (2012), Inherent Vice (2014), and The Phantom Thread (2017) to his music videos for Radiohead to his early short ﬁlms—is examined in illustrated detail for the ﬁrst time.
