  1. I love punch drunk love and it’s probably my favorite P.T. Anderson film (and I believe I’ve seen nearly all of them), even though I’m tempted to like his more epic films simply because they’re epic. I love how vulnerable Adam Sandler is, how he is able to convey a lot of raw emotions, and I love how much he adores Emily Watson. Also Mattress Man is a classic character. Finally, the surrealist touches are really powerful to me. For instance, sometimes Magnolia was overplayed–it tried really hard to mean something and to connect things. But the simplicity of the narrative is what helps give this film a strong and believable emotional core.
