A bold vision yet Deja Vu strikes...

“''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.''

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 ” read more

A powerful and poignant filmic experience

“There are stories of coincidence and chance, of intersections and strange things told, and which is which and who only knows? And we generally say, "Well, if that was in a movie, I wouldn't believe it." Someone's so-and-so met someone else's so-and-so and so on. And it is in the humble opinion of this narrator that strange things happen all the time. And so it goes, and so it goes. And the book says, "We may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with us."

Magnolia is writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson's answer to Robert Altman's Short Cuts. The film is an epic mosaic of modern American life and a tightly woven tapestry of several interrelated lives in the San Fernando Valley over the course of 24 hours. The stories of these characters are told through a series of” read more

“"Magnolia" is extremely well done. With a well-assembled cast including William H. Macy, Tom Cruise, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, John C. Reilly, and more, the characters are excellently acted. The story is great, and I could watch this movie over and over again just for the music, which is by Aimee Mann and completely fabulous.

I love watching this movie, even despite the fact that a couple of the actors in this movie are not my favourite actors. It is a great film, with a great story, cast, and music.” read more

Magnolia

“A cheap attempt to use Quentin Tarantino's script equivalent to Pulp Fiction, in a more dramatic setting. By the times the paths finally crossed, I think I was asleep. It is too bad Magnolia came out the same year as American Beauty, or else it might have had a better following.” read more
