Storyline

A very in-depth documentary that follows the very over-worked director Paul Thomas Anderson through a gruelling 80+ days of shooting for the film Magnolia (1999). Very funny behind the scenes material and interviews, press junket video and various screenings and meetings are presented to us, just to let us know how hard it really is to make a 188-minute film.

Himself: Can I ask you what you thought of the script when you firstread it?
Himself: I thought it was astounding. I went to Paul and I said "It's great, it's great, it's a little long..." and he goes "You fuckin' cocksucker! I'm not gonna cut one god damn word out of this thing! "So then I talked to Julianne and I said "What did you think about the script?" and she said "It's amazing. It's a little long."

Very Watchable, But Not Very Good
27 July 2005 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Paul Thomas Anderson makes a pretty engaging lead in this documentary about the making of "Magnolia," but the director, Mark Rance wastes a lot of running time. For example, we are treated to hearing an orchestra record the score, but why are there no scenes of Anderson and Jon Brion discussing the score? There are also scenes showing pre-production meetings, but apart from discussions about difficulties in scheduling the actors, the rest could be cut in favor of more Anderson/Robert Elswit footage. I would like to see a doc about Paul Thomas Anderson in the tradition of "Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky." I can't help but feel there is a better doc in the footage not used.
