An Instant Classic

The music; the way the camera moves; the performances: this amazing ensemble piece took everything to the next level. Although the influence of Robert Altman and Martin Scorsese can be felt throughout the whole film, P.T. Anderson didn't copy them but merely used some of their trademark techniques to create his very own, unique brand of film.

There are so many creative ideas and standout scenes in this film: I'm sure that, similarly to how filmmakers of Anderson's generation are citing films like 'Nashville' or 'Goodfellas' as their inspiration, the next generation of aspiring directors will be citing 'Magnolia'. The film is not "just" a masterpiece, but also hugely influential and an instant classic. 10 stars out of 10.

Full Cast Is Flawless, But Brilliant Cruise Unlucky Not To Win The Oscar

Magnolia (1999)

Plot In A Paragraph: 24 hours in the lives of 9 characters, whose lives are all connected in one way or another.

Magnolia, admittedly not for everyone!! Like most Paul Thomas Anderson movies, it runs too long and what happens towards the end certainly divides people.

There is not a single weak link in its amazing cast. Julianne Moore, Melora Walters, John C. Reilly, William H. Macy, Philip Baker Hall, Luis Guzman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Alfred Molina were all in Andersons Boogie Nights. Burt Reynolds was also asked to return, but he turned down the role of Tom Cruise's Dad, as he didn't like working with Anderson on Boogie Nights, and when they were on shows promoting the movie, he says Anderson was always interrupting him!!

Cruise is riveting, its possibly the best performance of his career. He was nominated for his third academy award, and won his third (and to date last) golden globe. I think he can consider himself unlucky losing to Michel Caine that year. I think he should have won. The death bed scene is superb. It's the stuff of legend that Philip Seymour Hoffman was not meant to cry in that scene, but he was that "in the scene" Cruise made his cry. Anderson liked it, and kept it in.

Magnolia grossed $22 million to end 2000 the 80th highest grossing movie of the year. The lowest performing Tom Cruise movie to date.

Best movie of all time

Maybe the best film I have ever see in my life. Actors, actresses, plot, directing, light, etc....all is perfect. The music is so important, it keeps you in a tension, you want to laugh, to cry, to scream, isn't it the goal of cinema? PT Anderson made a master piece, one of the greatest movie of history. Thank you.
