Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Magnolia makes it three-for-three for writer and director Paul Thomas Anderson – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: Nearly as impressive as Anderson's rapport with his actors is his use of parallel action to juggle their performances. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Sprawling mess of a film. – Paul Tatara,, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The more you think about Magnolia -- the dry wit, the bravura staging, the intricate design, the wondrous performances -- the better and more unusual the film seems. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

A True North American Film

I've seen this film by the first time ten years ago, when it was released at the theaters, in early 2000. The whole film is structured in the Regret theme, and how the past comes to collect their debts. The prologue of the film is a piece of Art, it helps to prepare the viewer to the film they will watch. "Magnolia" is long, but it has to be - and quite honestly, I didn't care on how long it was, since I was fully immersed in the film. Superb photography, well scored, very creative camera's movements combined with smart editing. Recommended!
