Magnolia 
A film as beautiful as a Magnolia.
4/4 stars

One of Paul Thomas Anderson's better films (there are many).
I am proud to say I am amongst those who consider PTA a Wunderkind (wonder child in German).
He is the only director of which I have seen all films, and this is arguably the best one, on the same level of achievement as There Will Be Blood.

This movie is dramatic, funny, smart, connected and unpredictable.
These may be the best-developed characters put to screen, because the story is basically about the characters. That every character has a story; a beginning, a middle and an end.
The actors are all hitting every right note, with one actor even delivering a performance that I believe should go down in history (Tom Cruise).
The script ties everything together. All the characters are somehow, even in the slightest ways linked to one another.They may have passed each other in the hall, gone on a date with each other, lived with them their whole life or not even met at all, but they still have something in common.
The music fits the atmosphere: romantic, yet dramatic.
The direction is also beautiful. Long, lingering shots capture the pure beauty of the actors in their scenes.

I cannot express how fond I am of this beautiful film and implore people to watch, laugh and cry and understand what it should be like to experience a film.
