A constellation of lives intersect and implode against the backdrop of the San Fernando Valley in Paul Thomas Anderson’s dark, dazzling vision of American despair. A gloriously unrestrained showcase for a top-flight ensemble cast—from Tom Cruise’s shamanically sleazy pickup artist to Julianne Moore’s pill-popping woman on the edge—Magnolia maintains a fever pitch of emotional intensity as it explodes in a catharsis of rage, love, pain, and beauty.
"One of the most enthtralling and exhilarating American movies in ages."
- Time Out
"The sprawling, messy, brilliant, exhausting, miraculous Magnolia- Paul Thomas Anderson's third film-is a mosaic of Los Angeles at the turn of the century."
- The Ringer
"As an act of filmmaking, it draws us in and doesn't let go."
- Roger Ebert
