Join us on Indies First Day and Small Business Saturday for a virtual book talk with Adam Nayman!
Paul Thomas Anderson has been described as “one of American film’s modern masters” and “the foremost filmmaking talent of his generation.” Anderson’s ﬁlms have received 25 Academy Award nominations, and he has worked closely with many of the most accomplished actors of our time, including Lesley Ann Manville, Julianne Moore, Daniel Day-Lewis, Joaquin Phoenix, and Philip Seymour Hoﬀman.
Paul Thomas Anderson: Masterworks by film critic Adam Nayman, produced by Little White Lies, examines, in illustrated detail for the ﬁrst time, Anderson’s entire career—fromHard Eight (1996), Boogie Nights(1997),Magnolia (1999), Punch-Drunk Love (2002), There Will Be Blood(2007),The Master(2012), Inherent Vice (2014), andThe Phantom Thread(2017) to his music videos for Radiohead to his early short ﬁlms. Anderson’s inﬂuences, his style, and the recurring themes of alienation, reinvention, ambition, and destiny that course through his movies are analyzed and supplemented by ﬁrsthand interviews with Anderson’s closest collaborators—including producer JoAnne Sellar and composer Jonny Greenwood—and illuminated by ﬁlm stills, archival photos, original illustrations, and an appropriately psychedelic design aesthetic.The book also features a foreword by the Safdie Brothers.
Masterworks is a tribute to the dreamers, drifters, and evil dentists who populate his world.
Adam Nayman is the author of The Coen Brothers: This Book Really Ties the Films Together and is a contributing editor to Cinema Scope.
