The video Hearing Paul Thomas Anderson compiles the sonically rich, subtle, and explosive sounds of the director's films in a continuous stream. This video is the first part of a four part series by creator Jacob T. Swinney. Swinney writes, "Many of these sounds seem to create their impact through a certain degree of harshness. The sounds are cold and sterile, standing out amongst the lush, extravagant cinematography. From lines of cocaine being savagely snorted, to oil rigs exploding in the desert, to bullfrogs cracking windshields, here is a showcase of some of PTA's greatest sounds."
