Product Description

Product Description

An intriguing and entertaining study in characters going through varying levels of crisis and introspection. This psychological drama leads you in several different directions, weaving and intersecting various subplots and characters, from a brilliant Tom Cruise, as a self-proclaimed pied-piper, to a child forced to go on a TV game show and the pressures he faces from a ruthless father.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoffman says: Dec 29 2007
Format:DVD
Phillip Seymour Hoffman said:

"I think Magnolia is one of the best films I've ever seen and I can say that straight out, and anybody that disagrees with me I'll fight you to the death. I just think it is one of the greatest films I've ever been in and ever seen."

Amen Mr. Hoffman. To the death.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is not a Tom Cruise movie July 9 2013

Yeah he's in it but it's not 'the Tom Cruise show'. He's only a part of this magnificent film. P.T. Anderson is genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars My all-time favourite movie...period, Jan. 5 2009
Format:DVD
Wow! I've read some of the reviews on here and it's pretty obvious that some people just didn't 'get it'.

The fact is, you HAVE to watch this movie, and ideally, several times. Every time I go back to it, I see something completely different. It's pure genius, and you'll burn out your remote pausing it every time to find the references to 8 and 2 (and yes, the frogs make complete sense - look it up!). I highly recommend watching this movie and then going to imdb.com (search Magnolia) to read all of the trivia associated with this movie - it will boggle your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Directly to our minds and hearts March 28 2004
By adrian
Format:DVD
The movie starts and you're caught in the stories that life can offer for us to know, and with the hand of liitle more than genious Paul Thomas Anderson, Magnolia offers you the chance to experience sweet, sour, devastating, funny, dramatic moments in the life of some people one rainy day in San Fernando Valley.
Magistral performances. Excellent dialogue. Refreshing yet classical direction. All this and much, much more is magnolia. A three hour rollercoaster of emotions driven by the unexplicable human behavior in a mosaic of characters as big and as little as our lives.
Claudia Gator- A junkie carrying the burden of a great secret on her shoulders. Mellorah Walters performance is magnificent. Laughing, crying or screaming, Mellorah manages to capture Claudia's constant desire to be saved and loved.
Jim- One of the last genuine good people left in San Fernando and the world, jim's only wish is to help people and find someone to love. Tough sometimes ingenuous jim manages to make you beleive in his good intensions towards others. One day someone or something hears his call and he meets claudia and he's not willing to let this pass by. john c reilly's performance could not be better.
jimmy Gator- Phillip Baker Hall is superb displaying an amazing dominium of his experienced actor skills. A regular family man, famous host of the most popular tv show ''what do kids know?''. however our whole opinion and view of this character will change when he makes his final confession to his wife. Claudia's secret is then revealed and so is jimmy and our minds and judmental side start to interact with this complex characters.
Donnie Smith-A former child star of jimmy's show William H Macy's character has a crush on a young bar tender and his idea of getting him is as human as can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnolia... July 29 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This masterpiece brilliantly directed by P.T. Anderson is perhaps my favorite film, for many reasons.
The film follows several lives during one day in San Fernando Valley, chances and strange happenstances affecting all of them. Child genius Stanley Spector (Jeremy Blackman) lives with his pushy father (Michael Bowen) while competing in a game show, "What Do Kids Know?" and winning every time, always answering the questions instead of his team peers volunteering to answer. He is tired of always being pressured for the game show, and from his father's constant strain on him to be perfect. The host of the show, Jimmy Gator (Philip Baker Hall) has developed cancer and will die in two months, depressed as ever. His wife Rose is beginning to realize that Jimmy's life may be a lie. His daughter, Claudia Wilson Gator (Melora Walters) hates her father, is addicted to coke and is immediately attracted to police officer Jim Kurring(John C. Reilly). Back to the gameshow--Donnie Smith (William H. Macy) is lonely after being fired from his job and is in love with a male bartender, who doesn't show it back, and Donnie will do anything to get his attention. "What Do Kids Know Producer?" Earl Partridge (Jason Robards) has also contracted cancer and will inevitably die very soon. His wife, Linda Partridge (Julianne Moore) married him only for his money, but is now in love with him. Earl's caretaker Phil Parma Philip Seymour Hoffman is holding onto the life of Earl while searching for the estranged Partridge son from Earl's previous marriage. This lost son has change his name to Frank T.J. Mackey (Tom Cruise) and gives sex advice to men in seminars and videotapes. These stories seem to have connection, yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Subtle, and Superb Oct. 29 2002
Format:DVD
"Magnolia", P.T. Anderson's philisophical and imaginative follow up to "Boogie Nights", is a daunting descent into realms of human emotion. The story of 9 main characters whose lives spin uncontrollably upon a roulette wheel of chance hits home with it's soundtrack, subtext, and intellectual brilliancy. All the actors in this film express the desire of the same kind - that inpenetrable taste of happiness, the feeling of life slipping away, the motions, motives, and madness of life. Anderson directs with somber sadness, each character's expression representing isolated soliquoys depicting defeat. While these actors subject their instincts into their character's drives and feelings, we begin to suspect that Anderson's creations are just metaphors for ourselves; rather, the emotive and ethical extremes of our daily escapades. Let's just ignore the fact that Mr. Tom Cruise is in this picture; ignore the fact that Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jason Robards appear in the film. As blockbuster names and household trivial quirks, these actors and actresses aren't what makes this film, but the story they create together. A Magnolia flower grows with each petal attached to its side, and wherever it grows, so does it's parts. Anderson, inventive, subjective, morally and immorally, creates a world of truths and lies, and does so beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect.
Can't beat PTA. This is my personal favorite of his films, but they are all great, well made, well acted and well directed. Where's his oscar for directing "The Master"?

Awful. Just awful. Three hours of yelling and confusion with barely a rational piece of dialogue anywhere. Read more
