trite gushings regarding great film
My reluctance to see this film in the theater was based solely on my friends' inability to describe what the film was about to my satisfaction.
"It's about this contest. These people put their hands on this truck, and the last one to remove their hands wins the truck. It's so good. I promise." Yeah, whatever.
My friends finally convinced me to go, and I was amazed. And very soon after that, I was the friend in the role of inarticulate defender, dragging anyone who would listen along with me for my second and third viewings.
My eloquence has not increased over the last two years, so I will simply say you will not be disappointed in watching Hands on a Hardbody. You may even be reminded how closely related we all are as human beings. You may also remember how dramatic and intriguing even the most seemingly uninteresting premises can be. And I defy you not to laugh out loud and/or get misty-eyed at some of the participants, not because they are presented as comic foils or ignorant east Texans, but because they are as human in their words and actions as you are likely to see in a film, documentary or otherwise.
how do i love this movie, let me count . . . well, you know
I have known several people who were not at all thrilled by this movie, I have since ruthlessly annihilated all of these dissenters and have made loving Magnolia a prerequisite of my friendship. (I crave the company of yes-persons.)
I cannot begin to describe how much I like this movie. It moves me just thinking about it. I watch it, and I simultaneously want to give the world the finger, weep for three days straight and raise my arms over my head in triumph.
If you have not yet viewed Magnolia, shut off your computer, proceed to your local VHS/DVD rental facility, procure this movie from the shelves and watch it tonight. I don't care if you have to get up early in the morning. Go!
