Drug Dealer Scene In Boogie Nights. Duh! Alfred Molina.

Does anyone else love the movie Boogie Nights? It's so great. I remember seeing it in the theater and being blown away. And I've seen it now at least 15 times.

Do you know the drug dealer scene? It's so great right? Well I could never figure out who the drug dealer was. And I would never look it up when I was watching it. But I heard Jessie's Girl on the radio the other day and I stopped and looked it up. I KNEW IT! It's the dude that was in Spiderman 2! And a million other movies! Alfred Molina. Here's his IMDB page. I guess I was thrown off because he's so thin in Boogie Nights.

Case closed. And everything about this scene I love. Where do I even start. You just get sucked into it and you know something is going to happen. I've been in similar situations back in the day where I've been somewhere...sitting on the couch...knowing something weird is happening. Phew.

Every times Boogie Nights is on, I have to watch it until that scene. It's just so tense and disturbing and entertaining.

Earl - I know. Probably one of my favorite scenes in any movie.

That scene is so tense! and that song really adds to the tension.
Alfred Molina is great, loved him in Coffee and Cigarettes.

Okay, I must confess, I've not seen it either. But I immediately recognised Alfred Moline; he's one of my favourites :) And he does look like hes having a good time. Fine, fine, I'll see the movie.

I absolutely love Boogie Nights. And The Big Lebowski, those I can easily watch every day without ever getting bored.
