Mattress Man Commercial (2003)
And, it genuinely made me laugh.
R.I.P Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Without a shadow of a doubt, Paul Thomas Anderson’s best work EVER.
The camera moves…so I guess that’s…something…
And, the Foley work/sound effects destroyed me.
Blossoms & Blood (2003)
Blossoms & Blood is like the music video edition of Punch-Drunk Love. It’s a wholesome yet melancholy companion-piece, indeed. And, ooooooh! Pretty colors everywhere!
Back Beyond (2013)
The fact that the deleted scenes of The Master are at a 5/5 quality in their own rights already says enough about how Paul Thomas Anderson’s aims for perfection never cease to fail. Back Beyond is twenty minutes of some of the most attractively shot, acted, narrated, and collaged sequences ever put to film and especially ever put in a bonus features section of a Blu-Ray disc.
But yeah, The Master could’ve totally been nearly three hours long and still would’ve been flawless!
Everything in This Dream (2015)
A sweet, little short film to put you at peace. Very relaxing. Very touching. A suitable compilation of deleted scenes from Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice.
But, I simply don’t understand how one could get rid of such fetching shots at marks 2:14 and 4:32 from their final draft. It’s criminal!
For the Hungry Boy (2018)
Makes me want to watch Phantom Thread again. Who knew watching someone order breakfast could be so elegant? Fitting short film title, by the way.
