Format: VHS Tape
you should like this. "punch-drunk love" does for lonely guys what "Amelie" did for lonely gals. both films are about odd, introverted people. both try to show the world as seen by the protagonists: magical and dreamy for Amelie; sterile and nightmarish for Barry Eagan. both are charming and sweet love stories. and strangely, both involve the sex trade! each in its own odd way. pdl is a (slightly) funnier film, though.
each film also makes interesting use of a different spatial dimension. in A, the vertical dimension is very important - many things either fall (A's mother, the goldfish, etc) or are discovered on the ground (the treasure box, torn pictures, boyfriend, etc). in PDL, it's the dimension into the plane of the film that's important - think of the long driveway leading up Barry's shop, or the corridors in the apartment and hotel, or the aiport walkway, etc. it's no coincidence that Leana first emerges from the end of the long driveway, or that Barry runs through the the long apt corridors to steal his first kiss, or that the lovebirds first hold hands as they stroll through the winding halls in the hotel.
the screenplay was very well written, especially for Barry. the conversations were funny just because they are so accurate: this is just the way you'd imagine someone like Eagen would talk. hilarious.
a good film. well worth watching.

It's a very moving movie about a lonely weird guy in the blue suit who found love in a surprisingly unexpected way. PTA used the power of movie to make a modern fairy tale: he gave unconditional love to this one person who needed love the most. Watching this movie makes me cry and laugh at the same time at the awkwardness and desperation for love of the main character. The color sequence in the movie radiates a strange warmness that somehow captures the powerful emotion of love...

Paul Thomas Anderson is either hit or miss with me. I liked the Hard Eight, I loved Boogie Nights, but I really thought he lost his way with Magnolia. That isn't to say I can't recognize that he is immensely talented and I'm looking forward to seeing his latest film There Will be Blood. Punch-Drunk Love is a smaller movie about Barry Egan, a business owner who sells novelty items such as stylized toilet plungers. Everything about Barry Egan permeates with a kind of frustrating sadness. His seven older sisters constantly insult him and his life is consistently portrayed as minimalist and disassociated. He is a profoundly lonely man. His bizarre social behavior is awkward but at times spirals into both perversion as well as intensely violent fits of rage. All the while, he is portrayed as the film's protagonist. Anderson is especially delicate in making us understand his eccentricities as justifiable survival mechanisms within the paradigm of his uncomfortable past and nearly pathetic current life. Anderson is careful not to mock or exploit Egan for his faults.

Who could play such a unique and intriguing character? I have to admit, I'm a big fan of Adam Sandler's early comedies. Especially Billy Madison and I don't care who knows about it. I love the silly and stupid humor of Adam Sandler and I firmly believe it is what put him on the map. But he was just a character in those early films and besides those films really are just a series of comedy sketches. It would've made more sense if Billy Madison were placed into a CGI world, a cartoon, or a comic book in the first place. He continued to be silly all along but his characters always carried this dark side that wasn't easy to pinpoint among the poop jokes and slap-stick.

The film itself is a sorely underrated masterpiece -- but as far as the service is concerned, I believe this was the first time I had ordered a movie online, and I've since done it several more times. Films such as this one (especially the special edition format) are next to impossible to find in chain stores like HMV, Future Shop, Best Buy, et al., so Amazon comes in handy here. My only conceivable gripe would be the cost, but when you struggle for weeks to find these movies in stores, the marginally higher price is worth it.

By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER on April 30 2011
Format: DVD
A short, weird confection of a film, full of wonderful moments, beautiful shots, terrific performances and odd ironies. Adam Sandler strips away all comic overtones to play an angry, dysfunctional, fragile, obsessive compulsive - who we somehow still care for. Emily Watson just about makes us believe she could fall for this emotional wreck.

While there are echoes of the Coen Bothers, this film is unlike any other I've ever seen. A weird and 90% successful mash-up of Hollywood romantic comedy, art-film, exploration of despair, and surreal playfulness. The first time I saw it, it blew me away. The second time, prepared for its wild twists I could appreciate its subtle details more, but also noticed the holes (e.g. Emily Watson's somewhat underdeveloped character - does she willfully not see Sandler's madness, or what makes her love it?). One of those films I look forward to watching yet again sometime.

While I look forward to a blu-ray edition, Sony's superbit DVD does look very, very good.
