Eleven people caught in LA who's lives intertwine during the film. A film of such magnitude that I had to stop and try to put pieces together. I have seen this film three times and each time am struck by the brilliance of director, Paul Anderson. How did he keep all of these characters in place and put together?
One life runs into another and another. Great performances all. Need, love, humanness, forgiveness, anger, hate, joy, are all brought to the fore within these characters. Tom Cruise in one of his best performances as the crude Frank- 'The Cock Has It'. Jason Robards as the drying man so loved and hated. Julianne Moore as his young wife, hooked on drugs and trying to find her place in life. Philip Seymour has the nurse who loves his patient and tries to do all he can to fulfill their last wishes. John C Riley, as the cop trying to find love and truth . William Macy as the child prodigy quiz kid who never grows up. Phillip Baker Hall as the TV quiz master who has cheated and lied and wants forgiveness as he is dying. Their are other connections, the young quiz kid who wants his father to be nicer to him. The father who wants his kid to bring him fame and fortune. The young woman hooked on cocaine trying to forget her life. All of these lives come together and in the final minutes of the film the skies open up and all have their lives in front of them.
"Magnolia"makes it three-for-three for writer and director Paul Thomas Anderson, 29, who follows Hard Eight and Boogie Nights with his most ardent and ambitious movie yet. Anderson keeps a tight lid on his work so that audiences can approach his character-based dramas with a sense of discovery. Fair enough. Magnolia is one of the best movies of the year - startling, innovative, hugely funny and powerfully, courageously moving."
Highly, Highly Recommended. prisrob 04-16-08

Far from Heaven
It is difficult for me to understand how anyone could find Tom Cruise' performance anything other than stellar. I really liked John C Reilly in this, and I normally don't. Macy was fabulous and so was Moore. Robards was really good and so was Hoffman. A really great cast, and EVERYONE was at the top of their acting game. BRAVO.
But can anyone tell me why John C. Reilly, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore and WIlliam H. Macy aren't credited at all on this movie, and the two "stars" are not stars of this movie?
wonderful 'Boogie Nights', and in some ways a more mature, if less
blazingly dynamic work. Full of amazing shots, amazing performances.
The epic, multi-layered film 'Short Cuts' wanted to be.
That said there are a few flaws. The biblical ending doesn't quite work
for me. I appreciate the ideas behind it, but it's an ending that's
less emotional than the film that proceeded it. And a few
moments of irony are forced. That was true in 'Boogie Nights' too, but
because that film had a lighter, more self-mocking touch, even the
heavy handed moments didn't stick out.
None-the-less, this is a must see film, overflowing with great
performances, unconventional storytelling, heartbreaking moments, and
an honest look at where we are and who we are as a society.
