Chris' Film Club: Boogie Nights
Following our theme of 'Musicians turned Actors' I've picked potentially the best film that Marky Mark (of the Funky Bunch fame) has ever starred in: Boogie Nights. Marky (or Mark Wahlberg as he has become better known) plays Dirk Diggler, an aspiring porn star in the 1970s and 80s. The film is very frank in it's depiction of the porn industry and that is certainly to it's credit. It is at times hilarious and heartbreaking and features an amazing cast, including Julianne Moore, John C. Reilly, Burt Reynolds, Don Cheadle, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Heather Graham.
