I don't know if I was expecting some major revelation from finally watching these early short films. This one in particular is more bad than good, and feels like it was written and directed by a high schooler (because it was). That being said, it ain't all bad because seeing the seeds that would become Boogie Nights is fascinating in a way. Like the more polished Coffee and Cigarettes which would blossom into Hard Eight, it's cool to see how even someone has talented as PTA could basically suck so hard at a young age.
