1. There Will Be Blood
2. Boogie Nights
3. Punch Drunk Love
4. Magnolia

Haven't seen Hard Eight.

I think what this shows, is to me, he should make nothing but period pieces, because I haven't liked a present set film he's done.

I've only seen 3 of his 5 films. The 2 I haven't seen are apparently major ones, so I'm in no position to talk too much about PTA.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

4. Punch-Drunk Love
5. Hard Eight

Hard Eight is really interesting as a historical document. It's a perfect signpost to where he's going in later films. Punch-Drunk Love could well move up when it gets a much needed revisit.

Paul Thomas Anderson is one of my favourite directors so it's very hard for me to say, but I am totally smitten with Punch Drunk Love, so that would be my number one. Having rewatched There will be blood recently I think I like it even more than my initial viewing. Here's how I would rank them;

1.)Punch Drunk Love
2.)Magnolia
3.)There Will be Blood
4.)Boogie Nights
5.)Hard-8
