The Films of Paul Thomas Anderson
November 26 - December 25

Paul Thomas Anderson, the writer-director of five remarkable feature films, enjoyed a career highwater mark last year with the justly celebrated THERE WILL BE BLOOD. While Anderson makes plans for his next project, we offer a look back at this young artist's body of work--each film unique, yet each marked by a willingness to go to extremes, be it narrative experimentation, daring performances, unabashed romance or just the patience, hard work and thoughtfulness some stories need to be told well. Anderson works with the entire cinematic palette--his choices for cinematography (Oscar-winner Robert Elswit has shot all of his features), music (scores by Jon Brion and Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, Aimee Mann's songbook for MAGNOLIA, and the fabulous soundtrack selections on BOOGIE NIGHTS), and art and production design (most recently Jack Fisk, a regular collaborator of Terrence Malick and David Lynch) bespeak taste and consideration, qualities that also mark his way with a story and his ability to guide fine actors to great performances. He even chooses good friends and mentors, like director Robert Altman, to whom THERE WILL BE BLOOD is dedicated. When concerns about the 80-year-old director's health threatened the production of A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION in 2005, Anderson--by now a well-established, award-winning director in his own right--signed on as an assistant director to get the film insured and green lighted. Whether you think this is a small act of kindness or the grandest of gestures, it's the same spirit of generosity that animates Anderson's work, and the cinema is richer for it.
