Magnolia (1999) - dir. Paul Thomas Anderson

It’s a filmmaker’s film. At the tender age of 29, Anderson brings us what feels like a culmination of decades in the film business. The mosaic structure allows the audience to personally connect to every situation. It’s a film that explores the meaning of life, and the purpose of relationships. Magnolia is an unyielding force, once you’ve seen it you can’t unsee it, and once you “get” it, you begin to question every other film you’ve seen.

The faults in the filmmaking somehow improve the overall picture. It’s such an accurate depiction of life, moments of bliss, humor, sadness, sorrow, pain, pity, I’m pretty sure all of the seven deadly sins are in there somewhere as well. The only problem with Magnolia is how gorgeously all-inclusive it is. At one hundred and eighty eight minutes the film is daunting, and too often remains unwatched.
