I just want to say that I think it's awesome that you have The Turin Horse, The Big Lebowski and the The General all in your Top 10. Very cool.

I was wondering if I could get your opinion on Magnolia, I am thinking of viewing it.

Hey Rob! I love Flickchart but I'm just getting the hang of how the social elements work... I saw on my page that you had asked my opinion on Magnolia, and as you may have noticed it's in my Top 20 so I do like it a bit :)

Currently it's my favorite film by Paul Thomas Anderson, though I believe that each of his films since then have represented successive leaps in ambition and skill.

The reason I love Magnolia the most out of his work is that it's very much the work of a talented young film director told to make the movie of his dreams. The sheer enthusiasm and heart of the filmmaker just leaps off the screen constantly from start to finish.

I could pick problems with it: The daddy issues are a little ham-fisted. For an ensemble film set in L.A. to not have any significant black or latino characters is a little weird. Some of the scenes drag on a little.

But in the end, it's nearly a religious experience to sit through. Like a good opera, just let it wash over you and don't think too hard until it's over.

Just for fun, I thought I'd list my favorite directors. These aren't ranked, but anyone in this list is a master as far as I'm concerned, and will always put my butt in a seat.

-Quentin Tarantino ('Pulp Fiction', 'Kill Bill')
-Ang Lee ('Lust, Caution', 'Brokeback Mountain')
-Bela Tarr ('The Turin Horse', 'Damnation')
-Paul Thomas Anderson ('Magnolia', 'There Will Be Blood')
-Chan-Wook Park ('The Vengeance Trilogy', 'Joint Security Area')
-Gaspar Noe ('I Stand Alone', 'Irreversible')

My list has shifted a bit since 2013, but I'm afraid to update it cause that'll go out of date too! I'm interested in Haneke. The only film of his I've seen was Funny Games, which I did like, but I could kind of see through the game. I hear Cache is really good, but I'd love some recommendations. If you liked Funny Games, check out Angst (1983) by Gerald Kargle... it has a similar vibe and is just as twisted in its own way.
