Former Calvin Klein briefs babe Mark Wahlberg proves he's got the, er, goods as a 17-year-old whose bulging crotch catches the eye of a porn auteur (Burt Reynolds). Re-dubbed Dirk Diggler, the young “talent” rises to the top of the 1970s skin-flick industry, only to fall on darker days in the '80s. A superbly acted, tragicomic ensemble piece that never judges the world it so artfully portrays.
