My second one is actually a deleted scene, and, coincidentaly, it's the OTHER awards ceremony.  I dunno how to describe it, but it's just so cool, and semi-surreal, and I wish it was in the movie.

After you said this, I went and looked at it.  The director's commentary is really telling as to why it works, and JCR's applause is hilarious and priceless.

Well, I don't know if this really counts, but I love the final shot in the last scene of Magnolia. :?

The "Wise Up" section of Magnolia make me cry.  My girlfriend thought it was ludicrous, like a scene from a Muppets movie, but that's why I love it.  It's perfectly plausible that all these characters are listening to the same radio station.

Boogie Nights: The scene where Phillip Seymour Hoffman's character tries to kiss Dirk, and then gets in the car repeating "I'm an idiot, I'm an idiot."  You'd have to be inhuman not to be moved by this scene.

PDL: Too many...beating up the bathroom?  The party at the sister's house when he kicks in the glass and then asks the dentist for help.  Amazing.

the only thing that bothers me about that is the fact that jason robards is singing too.  i mean, i know all the characters are singing at once, blah, blah, blah....but he was just given the liquid morphine and he's sitting there singing, i dont know, i always see people laugh at that, and there shouldnt be laughs in this section.  otherwise - terrific

edit, god i hate reading my older posts...

Well, I like so many others will have to say "wise up" is one of the most brilliant pieces in a film I have ever seen, it catches you off guard, because not everyone is listening to the radio, it's a dreary musical number that moves the story along and adds a touch of surrealistic whimsey. It rains frogs later, so for god's sake let's not take this all too seriously. Earl is deluded from morphine and pain, the sequence is about pain. Look at them all, it's agony to watch them and they're singing!

Boogie Nights, there's something I love about the Thomas Jane triple entrance with the coke and each time it gets more degraded, more desperate.

Hard Eight for the shear spectacle of it I love the "Old Timer" scene with Phil Hoffman, if you haven't yet seen Owning Mahoney go see it - talk about opposite of characters. I don;t think it's the best for the film, but I think Hoffman and Hall have such a great connection. I also love the scene where Hall is smoking and sees Paltrow come out of the room, and he knows in that moment...

Can we wax PT's car somemore...

Thank you for pulling up a great topic!!!

Always been my favorite PTA film scene, probably one of my favorite  in film altogether.

When Dirk, Brock, and TOdd go to Rob ALfred Molina's character.
Such a fucking tense, brilliant scene, It's the best hands down.

Come on guys frog raining scene .  what is that ?   How can you even compare that to Todd, Reed and Dirks drug deal at Rahad Jacksons house. when Rahad's awsome mix tape switches sides and sister christian comes on, it just dos'nt get any better than that. The pool party scene is pretty bad  ass too.

In Boogie Nights, the Alfred Molina scene.  All of the crazy stuff is going on with firecrackers, singing, etc and Anderson slows it down with that (I believe slow tracking) shot of Wahlberg.  Perfect.

Punch-Drunk Love is my favorite movie and the first PTA film I saw.  It's a movie I fell in love with and do so the more and more I watch it.  I guess the end, "here we go", sticks with me the most as my favorite scene.

Now that I'm at the end of this post I think one of the reasons his films work so well is because they are so kinetic but PTA always knows when to slow it down for moments when we really enter the characters psychology.  I'm rambling.

The Ad-libbing deleted scene of Reilley and Wahlberg yelling at the record exec.

How does it go again? And PTA gave it to who for their birthday?
