Episode 153 - PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE


Channeling his gift for comedic rage into a bracing and wonderfully odd character study, Adam Sandler reached his acting pinnacle in Punch-Drunk Love. It's a film that observes Sandler's onscreen persona through a distorted lens, and the Kafkaesque world created by writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson serves as the deconstructed version of a typical Happy Madison comedy. It's the Sandman as we've never seen before--and likely will never see again.

The Summer of Sandler is swerving into auteur territory, so put on your critical studies cap for an episode rich with theories, analyses, and meaningful lens flares.


Punch-Drunk Love (2002)
Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
Produced by JoAnn Sellar, Daniel Lupi, and Paul Thomas Anderson
