Go see it for yourself. And don't be surprised if you want to see it again and again.

As the years pass and we are weathered by universal experiences, the predicaments of Anderson's characters seem less pathetic and more like the plight of everyone we love and admire.

Short Cuts is clearly the starting point, but not the ending point for a movie that is probably the most overstuffed with ideas of anything in Paul Thomas Anderson's career.

A decade after its release, P.T. Anderson's emotionally epic Magnolia gets the glorious Blu-ray treatment it deserves. This Altman-esque mosaic follows several disparate L.A. citizens on one rainy day, as they navigate through mistakes and torrenti

Movie Metropolis finally slumps down under its own weight and becomes a shambles. But, dang, it's such an attractive shambles.

Just as something so reliably surprising as the weather can modify people's behavior, "Magnolia" encompasses an inter-connective human bond that accepts reality's blind spots. Purity of intention, as the story suggests, is a happy accident that can hit ev

There's a lot of really neat, cool honestly imaginative stuff in Magnolia, but it's hardly the best movie I've seen in the past month.

Magnolia is a mess, but it's somehow encouraging: It takes a gifted director to make a movie this extravagantly foolish.

What this film may have needed to get on its feet is some honest-to-goodness violence.

A bold move for Anderson, an amazing display of acting for Tom Cruise, and one of the best films of 1999.

I think Flannery O'Connor's philosophy -- that a desensitized culture sometimes need exaggerated, loud storytelling to reawaken it -- is the operating principle here.

Anderson's movie has the audacity to expose the ugliness within a society that worships power and cherishes materialism.
