Dirk Diggler's bid for rock glory

Mainlining the seething unchained spirit of 80s power balladry, Dirk Diggler (Mark Wahlberg) spends some of his hard-earned riches from the adult video biz on recording studio time to lay down his would-be chart-topper You Got The Touch. In this artistic endeavour he has the assistance of his fellow actor Reed Rothchild (John C Reilly), who boosts morale with some killer dance moves, and a put-upon recording engineer played by singer-songwriter Michael Penn. A glittering pop career surely beckoned for Dirk - industrial-strength cocaine addiction permitting - as seen in these extended and deleted scenes from Boogie Nights.
