Magnolia (1999): review


A variety of interlinked characters in LA pass through personal crises.

It is elegantly and assuredly made: Tom Cruise is supurb and the film has definate momentum. However, the characters are not really allowed to breathe freely- they are just puppets, whose purpose is to serve the director's (presumably Christian) moral preconceptons.
