Boogie Nights (1997)

2. Boogie Nights (1997)

10 of 11

Mark Wahlberg arrived on the acting scene in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights.  Although Wahlberg had acted in films before this, his ability had never been so obvious.  Although Boogie Nights is an ensemble picture about the dark side of the porn industry in 1970s So-Cal, Wahlberg shines above the rest as a teenager who just wants the most out of life despite constantly running into trouble.
