Magnolia ★★★★

look, sometimes you've just gotta sit back, listen to some aimee mann and consider the unbearable weight of existence.

pta was really flexing on this one, huh? he knows how to get the best out of these actors (julianne moore and tom cruise really stood out to me but everyone is great). interconnecting vignettes like this can be a hard sell, because if it's done badly it easily becomes such a drag (especially in a movie that runs this long) but it really all comes together so well here.
