MOVIE REVIEW:Magnolia
Auhtor:

   

This film is my favorite to watch as someone who admires what it takes
to make a movie. It is truly a masterpiece in every way. The casting is
perfection as it always is from Cassandra Kulukundis.

The script is virtually flawless(except for spelling and grammar), and
could possibly be better than the movie.

The film is shot in anamorphic which fits the atmosphere of the film
eloquently.

P.T.A. is one of the most interesting writers with many interesting and
disturbing stories to tell. His skills as a director are also visible
in the screenplay and the film. The direct conduction of the camera
movement from the paper to the screen is amazing. Many scenes could
have been boring if not for the acting and the constant pushing and
pulling of the camera from close ups to two-shots.

Magnolia is sad, brutal, and at times hilarious and violent. The
complete 189 min. of this film are truthfully worth your time.

My friend Jim and his wife politely asked me to leave at the 120 mark.
I comforted them with the usual stuff, 'it's almost over', 'it might
get better' etc.

Magnolia is chock full of fantastic actors giving it their Sundays'
best. Tom Cruise in particular gives the best performance of his
career. It's another quirky, outlandish role similar to his role in
Tropic Thunder. The only parts of this movie that I found entertaining
were the moments when Tom was on screen.

This is tough. I realize that there was care and talent put into this
film, but there comes a point were a film tries to big bigger than it
is, and a point when boring becomes a negative that you just can't
overcome as a viewer. This film makes 'Out of Africa', and 'The Thin
Red Line' look action packed.

I understand the members wanting to 'conform' to the high user rating
here as to look more film-savvy or film-educated, but this movie is
like pulling healthy teeth with plastic scissors.

I appreciate it for what it is – something that I will never, EVER
watch again.

It's not that I 'didn't get', or the assumption that I can't enjoy a
slow film(because I can), but I found the pace to be record-setting
slow, and with a biblical, philosophical surprise that does nothing for
me except ruin the realism and the performances that led to it. To
squash any attempts to say that I cannot appreciate a film like this -
I loved 'There Will Be Blood' – another 'slower-paced' film from the
same director no less.

Not recommended.
