I wouldn't say "all real movie lovers" will love this film. I will say that if at any point in Magnolia you ask "Why am I watching this?" , you should stop. I love the hell out of it, but it's the sort of movie that you just have to intrinsically enjoy watching, for the performances, the camerawork, the energy, the intensity. The plot is incidental, and the ending is more of an emotional conclusion than a "meaningful" one. Great, great movie.

I agree with those two comments. This film, although three hours in length, grasped my attention the entire way through it. It's realistic, emotional, and thought provoking. Definitely one of the better films I've seen in a long, long time.

It's like a really loud Kieslowski film. And very brilliant.
