Magnolia was absolutely perfect. The sheer scope and ambition alone is amazing, but the fact that it all comes together, that PTA managed to pull it all off, is incredible. This huge mosaic of intertwined stories, of individually fantastic performances and moments that weave together to create this audacious tapestry of a movie. The flawless opening sets the stage and introduces the many seemingly disparate characters, all played by an unparalleled ensemble cast, but as the movie gets underway, connections and similarities emerge as the storylines begin to entangle. Listing all the things that make the film the masterpiece that it is would just mean listing everything that makes a movie. Magnolia is beautiful, it's perfect, it's the second best movie I've ever seen and I love everything about it.

This movie has me at a loss for words. 3 hours just flew by. It's amazing what PTA was able to do with so many different characters and make us care for them and bring them together.

For the first 2 hours I really didn't know what to think about this: I appreciated the craft but plot lines felt like depicting a painting without the brushes acquiring a significance. Then, in the last hour, PTA pulled the wires beautifully, diving deeper into the characters and deeper into their connection. William H. Macy, John C. Reilly and Melora Walters were especially outstanding. Tom Cruise as well - I couldn't have imagined the depth of his portrayed character after having seen him till the interview, which was a greatly made turning point. Both the speech at the gas station and Jim/Claudia date and frailty coming out and together was touching, as the final smile and hopefully healing. "I really do have love to give, I just don't know where to put it" was heartbreaking and probably the single line that struck me most in the whole movie

Carried by extraordinary performances and a case study in pacing, this was one hell of a movie. Some plot point issues for sure, but very entertaining and engrossing.

I remember seeing this in the theater with one of my friends, during our first year in college. We had all found our way back to town and... given we lived in the sticks... we ended up going to the movies out of habit and for lack of anything else to do.

And I'll be honest, at the time, I walked More

Been a long time since I last watched this but even though this was 3 hours long, never felt the length and I was pretty much captivated throughout (although I did pause a few times to get refill on my drink or grab a snack). The performances all around were great, most notably Tom Cruise, Melora Wa More
