A heavily illustrated mid-career monograph exploring the 30-year creative journey of the 8-time Academy Award–nominated writer and director
Paul Thomas Anderson has been described as a true auteur and among the foremost ﬁlmmaking talents of his generation. His ﬁlms have received 25 Academy Award nominations, and he has worked closely with the ﬁnest actors of our time, including Daniel Day-Lewis, Joaquin Phoenix, and Philip Seymour Hoﬀman. In Paul Thomas Anderson: Masterworks, Anderson’s entire oeuvre—from Boogie Nights (1997), There Will Be Blood (2007), and The Master (2012) to his music videos for Radiohead to his early short ﬁlms—is examined in illustrated detail for the ﬁrst time.
Anderson’s inﬂuences, his style, and the recurring themes of reinvention, alienation, destiny, and ambition that course through his movies are analyzed and supplemented by ﬁrsthand interviews with Anderson’s closest collaborators and illuminated by ﬁlm stills, archival photos, original illustrations, and a vibrant, engaging design aesthetic. Masterworks is a tribute to the dreamers, drifters, and evil dentists who populate his world.
