First there was the gold rush, then there was the oil boom, now there is the frenzy every time Mondo releases another collectible movie print. This week, prepare to dive deep into the world of modern American master Paul Thomas Anderson with five new images celebrating his impact on cinema.
Mondo was already under Anderson's charismatic influence earlier this year when they released a print for his Oscar-nominated not-an-L.-Ron-Hubbard-biopic The Master. Now completists can have his complete feature filmography in one week in a collection curated by Mondo regular Aaron Horkey, and approved by Anderson himself
The series starts today with Anderson's debut feature, 1996's intimate tale of grifters and gamblers Hard Eight. Wednesday, it's a retro take on Heather Graham's Rollergirl for Boogie Nights, while it's a one-two on Thursday with his most widely debated work, Punch Drunk Love, and his heart-scarred examination of how the past shapes us, Magnolia. Then how could Mondo close out the week but with Horkey himself taking on Anderson's masterful examination of the brutal roots of the American oil industry and the birth of a corporate titan – There Will Be Blood.As always, you need to follow @Mondonews on Twitter, or Mondo Tees on Facebook to find out exactly when the prints go on sale. But here's a little tease for you.
