Upon the completion of his epic three-hour MAGNOLIA, Paul Thomas Anderson vowed to create a concise ninety-minute comedy as his next film.  Three years later Anderson emerged with a delightfully strange and beautiful love story starring Adam Sandler, Emily Watson, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as the villainous Mattress Man.  Described by Anderson as an “anti-musical,” PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE pairs the dazzling technicolor of Robert Elswit’s cinematography with the surrealistic jazz-pop of genius composer/producer Jon Brion (Fiona Apple, Kanye West) in a film so brimming with life that one expects Sandler to belt out in a song at any moment.  Anderson’s most touching film and an ode to the wave of emotions brought upon by finding one’s true love. (Davis Rivera)
