Another vote here for crash ripping of Magnolia, and I don't really problem with that unless the movie sucked which it did. Forced drama and overracting was the culprit. Wheras Magnolia was so smooth & natural...is one those close to perfection ensemble that comes out once in a blue moon that also gets better with time like a great wine.
Like pulp fiction, braveheart, Leon and now this yr with watchmen...Magnolia is no doubt in my top 5 greatest of all time. # 1 for music score, funny too some scenes were bordering on being a musical. Btw for a serious drama, it had great humor and made me laugh way more than a comedy like The Hangover which was crap so its not fair I guess.
