" Roger Ebert's comment : " 'Magnolia' is a film of sadness and loss, of lifelong bitterness, of children harmed and adults destroying themselves. As the narrator tells us near the end, 'We may be through with the past, but the past is never through with us.' In this wreckage of lifetimes, there are two figures, a policeman and a nurse, who do what they can to offer help, hope and love. That may not be the 'Magnolia' you recall. It was not quite the film I recalled, either, and now that "

" Note : Paul Thomas Andeson is one of the best directors around and this is his best movie so far. Fascinating characters and stories, amazing directing, all actors give very good perfomances (Tom Cruise is maybe insane but definitely can act). I loved it."

"Brilliant emotional ride into the core of humanity. Who you are, where you come from and accept what you are. The second time watching the three hours felt bit too long but still great movie. My favorite from the director is still bigger-than-life There Will Be Blood. "

"24/06/10, DVD Magnolia on hieno elokuva. Se on tarina muutamasta toisiinsa liittymättömästä ihmisestä, jotka kuitenkin liittyvät toisiinsa jollakin tavalla. Elokuva jättää paljon kysymyksiä auki ja jättää paljon tulkinnan varaan, eikä pidä katsojaa lainkaan tyhmänä. Magnolia on niin draamapainotteinen (vaikka seasta löytyy ehkäpä pari kohtaa, joille voi hymähtää), musta ja tummasävyinen elokuva, että tämän rinnalla monet muut draamat kalpenevat. Kerrassaan mahtava."

" ''This happens. This is something that happens.'' Lets just say, Paul Thomas Anderson has succeeded in putting into film a rather clever interpretation of a butterfly effect. Anderson creates a vast canvas of barely-related and briefly overlapping storylines and characters that come together under the blooming flower concept of a single major theme and a few minor ones. Anderson's concern is to explore the ideology of forgiveness and to examine the part it plays in the redemption of ourselve"

This happens. This is something that happens.

“''This happens. This is something that happens.''

An epic mosaic of several interrelated characters in search of happiness, forgiveness, and meaning in the San Fernando Valley.

Tom Cruise: Frank T.J. Mackey

''Sometimes people need a little help. Sometimes people need to be forgiven. And sometimes they need to go to jail.''

A very powerful and extremely underrated drama.

“Magnolia didn't really satisfy me when I first saw it but after rewatching it, I loved it! It is a very dark, thought-provoking film that keeps you glued to your TV and chair all the way through the film. It is a film set in one day and I love films like that anyway! I think the main thing I loved about Magnolia is that I saw men and women in almost all categories of struggles in life. Every storyline has its powerful climax where almost all of them join together.

There are a lot of incredibly talented actors in this film! The cast includes John C. Reilly, Tom Cruise, Julianne Moore, William H. Macy, Jeremy Blackman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Melora Walters, Philip Baker Hall, Jason Robards, Felicity Huffman and Alfred Molina. The best performance of the film is definitely Tom Crui” read more

"Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. The coincidence in this movie is not apparent. Rather, I believe this movie is about choice- and the where and when this reality manifests itself. Throughout the film, we are introduced to characters both young and old, perhaps only sharing emptiness among them. Through the variety especially in age of characters, the movie presents choice in its three forms- present, past, and future- making present choices, choices already made, and setting ourselves up to mak"
