Pros:thought provoking, amazing story...

Cons:need 3 hrs of time...worth it though...

If you like movies that come from the Sundance Film Festival, you will certainly love Magnolia. It is the third film by writer director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Hard Eight). Even though it has nothing to do with the festival, it would be welcomed by its participance. The 183 minutes are completely worth your time.

There are many things to look for, such as the occurance of the number "82" over 100 times in the film (Refer to Exodus 8:2 in the Bible if the movie confuses you). I believe that P.T. Anderson's movies are all wonderful, but I think that Magnolia has that little bit 'o something extra. I have seen it four times now, three of those were in the theatre, and now own it on DVD. I highly disagree with John Somersby's opinion. After all, his favorite movies are Terminator, Alien, etc...
A person like that, no offense, shouldn't expect to enjoy a movie like Magnolia.

For those of you who like something a little different, and cleverly laid out with many twists and turns, check out Magnolia. It is one of the best films I have ever seen. You'll think so too...
