It’s Episode 117! Jake from Ghibliotheque and Louisa co-founder and creative director of Girls on Tops tees join Flixwatcher for Jake’s choice Hard Eight.

Hard Eight is the debut film from Paul Thomas Anderson starring PTA regulars John C Reilly and Philip Baker Hall, and Gwyneth Paltrow with cameos from Philip Seymour Hoffman and Samuel L Jackson. This 1996 film is massively different to Boogie Nights that came out the year after in both story, style and tone.


Hard Eight is a more reserved, slow and atmospherically dark film. The characters are difficult to like and at times the lack of plot makes for frustrating viewing. Hard Eight is a must for any PTA completist and Jake, less essential for everyone else. There was less love for Hard Eight from Louisa and Helen and it scores 3.24 overall.
