Magnolia ★★★★½

rewatched and knocked down half a star for william h. macy's plotline. i love supertramp but his story line doesn't fully click for me. i like him as an older parallel to stanley on the show at present and the future extenuation of his current situation, but i think his story in itself doesnt manage that simple truth that the rest of the film really cogently gets at. i think its part of his character to telegraph everything in a overly grandious explicit way, but his story ends up feeling more surface level.

i'm still such a claudia. we can get through all of this piss and shit together.
