I read a lot - at least by most people's standards. And I watch quite a few films. And the vast majority of what I read/watch leaves me feeling just so-so. Take it or leave it. Though now and then I'll think something is good. Maybe very good. Five-stars-out-of-five good.

And then - very, very occasionally - you come across something which is another-order-of-magnitude good. Something which just takes your breath away and doesn't give it back until you turn the last page or watch the closing credits roll up in front of you. And you realise that what it's all been for. That's why you've ploughed through all those novels or sat through all those movies. To get to here.

Last year I got there with Victor Pelevin's The Clay Machine Gun. Last night I found myself there again when I watched a film I knew nothing about but had popped on my Lovefilm list after seeing an interesting review. Magnolia. Where was I in 1999 when this was released? What was I doing? How could it possibly have come to a point where, nine years later, I'd never even heard of this film?

I won't even try to describe it to you - beyond saying that it follows the interlocking lives of a series of characters in Los Angeles - but it was absolutely captivating. Several minutes into the opening montage I had that feeling of absolute 'rightness'. That sense that there was absolutely nothing in the world I'd rather be doing at this moment than sitting here, laptop propped up on my knees, watching what was unfolding in front of me. And three hours later (yes, it's long, but then, hell, so is War and Peace) I was still captivated. And open-mouthed. Literally. Towards the end my jaw actually dropped, I was so astounded and moved and transfixed by what was happening on the screen.

A interweaving series of stories of life, death and love which all take place on the same day and affect each other in unexpected ways. This is a beautiful and intelligent film, with excellent performances from actors such as Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, William H. Macy and others; as well as an outstanding soundtrack by Aimee Mann. First-rate filmmaking.

A brilliant, long but entertaining from start to finish, movie journey. The cast is excellent, the intermingling stories compelling and it is character rich throughout. The start is simply ace and there are some memorable moments, mainly through Tom Cruise's super performance and the ending. The pace, tone an story is clever, dark, amusing and entertaining. There are some sad parts and some memorable moments, all of which provide it with the ingredients for a great movie.

Yes it is messy, complex, depressing and sinister. But it is a must watch.

Plot - Two families suffer fathers riddled with cancer, as each of their individual lives is unravelled as a mess too.

A Hollywood must for anyone out there who believes that Hollywood is only capable of over-producing glitzy action movies.
Euro-Cinema take note, this tale, its delivery by ensemble cast and its evocative soundtrack has it all and more to steal your off-beat thunder.
Following the coincidentally intertwined lives of a selection of city dwellers each character is used as a vehicle for a social commentary which is thought provoking, disturbing and truly compelling. Those looking back at this film in years to come will be able to identify many of the social ills of the late 20th Century in Western Society.
Happy Days ...

Iv read every review for Magnolia on here folks, and every one of them seem to miss the point(including the 5 star reviews).
I would like to point you all in the right direction....
The number 82 is everwhere in this film....the 3 prologues for example(some 82s are more obvious than others). Hell, theres even a member of the What Do Kids Know? audience with Exodus 8:2 writen on a placard. Which brings me to the reference itself... Exodus 8:2 - "But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite your whole territory with frogs." :o)
Given that the movie revolves around a game show that abuses children, and that most of the people involved with that game show abuse children(in many different ways)...a plague of frogs as punishment from "God" is quite fitting. I should add though(being an athiest) that P.T.Anderson does seem to lean toward the natural and scientific explanation for this event.. "A scientific explanation for the phenomenon has been developed that involves waterspouts. In effect, waterspouts are capable of capturing objects and animals and lifting them into the air. Under this theory, waterspouts or tornados, transport animals to relatively high altitudes, carrying them over large distances. The winds are capable of carrying the animals over a relatively wide area and allow them to fall in a concentrated fashion in a localized area."...and this is reflected in his various weather updates during the movie. Dont they say that its the timing of such an event and not the event itself that makes a miracle!
I hope this helps...and perhaps gives fans of the movie the chance to watch it again with a fresh perspective.
