Punch-Drunk Love (15)

Dir. Paul Thomas Anderson, USA, 93 mins, 2002
Touching and unique, Punch Drunk Love is also delightfully funny, utilising Adam Sandlers comic persona to explore the life of a lonely man looking for love.
Barry Egan, a psychologically troubled novelty supplier is nudged towards romance with an English woman, all the while being extorted by a phone-sex line run by a crooked mattress salesman, and purchasing a stunning amount of pudding.
Adam Sandler delivers an astonishing performance in Paul Thomas Andersons charming and offbeat romantic comedy.
