PTA. P.T. Anderson. Whichever monicker you refer to him by, Paul Thomas Anderson is a filmmaker that all students of film should be studying.
We’ve examined Anderson’s work quite a bit here at NFS, including what characterizes his cinematic style, the way he tells stories with cinematography, and even hearing from the director himself discuss each one of his films. But this time, we get it all. Virtually every facet of PTA’s life and work are explored in these two episodes of Raccord’s The Directors Series, hosted by filmmaker Cameron Beyl.
So, pop some popcorn, get cozy, and get ready for an hour-long exploration of the great auteur.
