It's been said, but The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is horrifying for what it doesn't show. New Line snatched up the distribution rights in the early 80s, allowing new audiences to experience Massacre's gripping realism and documentary-style horror.

Though heavily reminiscent of Altman, Magnolia's driving romantic pulse and ascent into wondrous surrealism makes Anderson more than an imitator; it places him in the company of the American masters.
