The movie was absolutely awesome! PTA knows how to amaze the audience. The cast was great (especially Tom Cruise), the script good and the story realistic. One of the greatest movie, the world has seen!

Another winner from P T Anderson. Inventive character study spanning the lives of several (possibly too many) protagonists, dealing with many delicate and difficult subjects. Brilliantly acted, Tom Cruise giving a performance that proves me can actually act given the right director and material.

Magnolia is a brilliant film and potentially PT Anderson's masterwork. It boldly and smoothly juggles a multitude of storylines, all with similar themes of deconstruction and redemption. The film has a host of powerful character performances, notably by John C. Reilly (an Anderson staple) and Philip Baker Hall. Tom Cruise also plays against action man type here in a role outside of his movie star persona. The film's soundtrack is gloriously scored by Aimee Mann and Jon Brion and the film's concluding religious deus ex machina only works because it weaves so well into the themes the film has been toying with throughout its three hour length. One of my all time favorites.

A hard film to judge. I liked the narative stucture and the characters very much. It hit some good emotional points and everything gets resolved, for the most part. Screen time is shared equaly between the actors and they each have their own moment to shine. My only real complaint would be that it's a little too long for it's own good and this makes it harder to enjoy on repeated viewings. In the end, it's a solid film that's stuffed full of stories with emotional depth. Deffinitely worth seeing at least once.

Stunning. Be forewarned-its strong language is affronting, but makes the redemption that much more astounding. The theme of the wounds that children carry from their fathers is conveyed powerfully

All that I can remember from this movie is Tom Cruise yelling "respect the cock!" lol.

Is it pretentious? yes. Is it over the top? yes. Is it brilliant? yes. Good, thats all that matters. Best living director does what he does best.

An ensemble cast and interlinking story (however tenuous) make this worth watching, even if at three hours it is a bit too long. Still, the stories are wonderful, even when they're heartbreaking.

"Magnolia" is Paul Thomas Anderson's crowing achievement. Sure, "There Will Be Blood" was excellent, as was "Boogie Nights" and "Punch-Drunk Love," but this movie is truly amazing. Anderson takes as many thoughts and philosophies as he can and creates, through means of INCREDIBLE performers, stories that touch every aspect of human life. There are haunting similarities between these characters who are only slightly connected to each other. A mosaic of themes and powers, this is a touching tale of tragedy and comedy intermingled and married to heartache and hilarity.
