Mini Magnolia
28 October 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The critics are ALL WRONG!!! 2 out of 5 stars is the biggest understatement since the criticisms on Fight Club. This movie contains all the necessary elements; laughter, drama, suspense. IMDb has a more accurate picture with its current 7.8 out of 10 stars.

Sven mentions Magnolia being a masterpiece, this movie is in the same category on a smaller scale. It is one not to be missed nor forgotten (given its unique plot). Take it from someone who lives in L.A.

There are twists of a roller coaster, the audience being pushed every which way possible. The actors for the main characters seem "unfit" for the role at first, however, later you see how there could not be two more fitting actors for the roles. The story is pure genius by making you feel at one with the struggles emphasized throughout the film. Sven Pape's future films will peak a curiosity from me just based on his name alone, which will always bring me back to this film.
