Magnolia ★★★★★

I've had a long and weird relationship with this movie. Wanted to love it, but just couldn't get it when it first came out. Somewhere, I began to love it DESPITE its flaws. Looking back now, I hardly see any flaws at all. I used to think, I knew what he wanted to do, but the movie just didn't work. Now, I can hardly figure out why I thought that. No, it isn't quite perfect, and I do think the pacing is a little slow at times, but damned if this movie isn't brilliant. And the only thing thats changed in 12 years is me. So I guess its on me.
