Weirdly enjoyable - Magnolia review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
11/04/2007

A strange film with a plot that jumps all over the place; some very weird stuff happens, especially towards the end of the film. However, there are some superb performances to hold your interest, especially Tome Cruise's hilarious portrayal of masculinity guru Frank, and Julianne Moore's neurotic wife of a dying millionaire. There are many different stories and threads running through the film and it is a little long, so make sure you watch it when you're not tired!

Magnificent - Magnolia review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
02/07/2009

This is a sprawling epic of a film, featuring an immensely talented cast and epically contorted plot. Magnolia is the type of project rarely given the go ahead and shows the faith the studio had in Paul Thomas Anderson, that was fully realised in There Will Be Blood. The length on paper seems an issue, but the actual experience justifies this as you patiently wait for everything to merge. Hoffman, Macy, Moore, Cruise and others all deliver fine performances.

Huge, complicated and compelling - Magnolia review by CW

Spoiler Alert
23/05/2020

As other reviewers have said, Magnolia is a composite of several stories that later are woven together. I enjoyed each story and their resolution. Excellent cast and directing. I think THE best role Tom Cruise has had. Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s performance will break your art. Riveting performances.
