Yes I saw it. I liked it ok, though not as much as most.
I think I was expecting something different. I will go and see it again in a theater. I am sure I will appreciate more with a second viewing.

I haven't seen Hard Eight, but:

1. There Will Be Blood (A)
2. The Master (A-)
3. Boogie Nights (A-)
4. Magnolia (B+)
5. Punch-Drunk Love (B)

PTA is fucking consistent.

Hard Eight is the only picture of his I don't outright love.

Hard Eight doesn't have the highs of Boogie Nights, but at least it's not a straight-up ripoff of another film, namely GoodFellas.

I think it's a well-acted and written film.

Anyway:

Masterpieces
1. Magnolia
2. There Will Be Blood

Great
3. The Master
4. Punch Drunk Love

V. Good
5. Hard Eight
6. Boogie Nights

Boogie Nights is definitely ripping off Goodfellas as far as its camera work is concerned, but I wouldn't reduce it simply to that. There's simply too much greatness in there (particularly the Long Way Down sequence which is as good as PTA got). Besides, Scorsese would be the first to admit he's also very much derivative.

My ranking:

1. There Will Be Blood
2. Boogie Nights
3. Magnolia
4. The Master
5. Punch-Drunk Love
6. Hard Eight

Great stuff, and having read Pynchon's novel (a delightful breeze compared to his mammoths) I only expect the best from PTA.

So, The Travelling Players (or O Thiasos).

Amazing. For the first hour I was pretty much in a WTF mode, but then everything seemed to click. Angelopoulos' manipulation of time with his long takes is really impressive and the choreography of those scenes is stunning. I'm looking forward to seeing more of his work. Another master in the vein of Tarkovsky and Tarr indeed.

I dig reading Boogie Nights as the "in the Valley" porn offshoot of other Hollywood movies, so the derivation doesn't take away from how fun the whole venture is.

"Are those lizard?"
"No, they're Italian."
