Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia is considered one of the finest films to be produced in the past three decades. Featuring truly an ensemble cast, the multi-narrative tale of several interconnected Los Angelinos earned three Oscar nominations and two Golden Globes, including a win for star Tom Cruise in a Supporting Role.

The most imperfect of the year's best movies, Magnolia's flaws are easily forgiven because they are the result of go-for-broke ambition.
