Ashes of Time Redux
4 months ago via Movies on iPhone

WKW brings melancholic longing & jaw-dropping visuals to Wuxia genre, but distances with mopey, solipsistic characters.

John Lithgow adds so much value to this. The opening scene is far and away the best thing Renny Harlin's ever directed.

Killer gangster movie infused with the Coens' air for visual gymnastics and beautifully quotable dialogue. And I don't think I ever seen a hero get the crap kicked out of him quite as often as Gabriel Byrne in this flick.

Ambitious. Unwieldy. Audacious. Insane. Emotional. Hysterical. Sublime. Overlong. MAGNOLIA is all these things and so, so much more. Paul Thomas Anderson's intimate epic about lost souls, human connection and interaction in the San Fernando Valley is, by and large, a stunner. It features some of the most exciting, audacious filmmaking you will ever see, is such a multi-layered, mature work, and has such a mainline to the human condition that you'll wonder... how in the hell did this emerge from a 28 year old writer/director/producer, making just his third film?!? Sure, it's 3 and a bit hours long and goes a little haywire at times, but it's such a beautiful, thrilling, intriguing, unapologetically emotional journey -- with so many great actors putting in career-best performances -- you've got to applaud the filmmaker's wild ambition and respect his singular talent. Standouts among the cast are John C Reilly, Melora Walters, Julianne Moore and Tom Cruise -- you won't see Cruise, both the actor and the image, utilised better than he is here. Due to the picture's sweep, ambition and heady mix of raw power, quirkiness, cinematic energy and melodrama, the film is not to everyone's taste, but those who fall for it will fall hard.
