It's worth a rewatch if you don't remember it. Tom Cruise's best performance in my opinion. I don't really recall the soundtrack though, so I'm going to have to revisit it myself.

Frank TJ Mackie is the only acceptable cover image for me.

One of my favorite films.

100% agree it's Mr. Cruz's finest acting performance. Also it was the introduction to John C Reilly for many.

I'll be honest I haven't, not due to lack of interest, due to backlog longer than I'll ever finish haha

#102048 The film is excellent, as is the soundtrack (Aimee Mann songs, which were very prominent in the film). I can't say I remember the score, but I was less interested in such things when I watched it.

I try not to be negative, but that artwork looks terrible in those images (to me).

#102049 Old man yarn time.

In the Uk in the 90s for one or two summers we had a thing called national cinema day, where all tickets were £1 across the country. So when we arrived to watch magnolia, we suddenly realised we now had enough for a huge bag of grass and an additional ticket for Being John Malkovic straight after.

I’d call it a formative event in my life, but I hardly remember any of it apart from being upset about the scene where Malkovic goes inside his own head, and the frogs landing on the car after being scooped by the firefighter plane. If sometimes wonder if national cinema day was done on purpose to mash my brain up like in magnolia.

Those were the days

Agree with Monster. One of my all time favorite films. Made me buy a lot of Aimee Mann cd's at the time. Love that melancholy music.
Looking forward to this release.

I don't think I am mistaken in this case. I have it on very good authority that I really don't remember the film and, unless you have convincing evidence to the contrary, I have to go with my trusted source on this one.

Sorry to contradict you, chief, but you are indeed wrong. You've just forgot that you DO remember. Apology accepted in advance.

#102063 I've seen this film. And I loathed it! hahahahaha....

I love Jon Brion's work though. I Heart Huckabees and Eternal Sunshine are both right up there for moi.

#102070 The Brion score is good stuff but this is worth it for Wise Up alone. :)

Looks to be 45rpm to boot.

#102095 Best PTA film? In a universe where There Will Be Blood and Boogie Nights exist?

#102151 Definitely a formative movie for me, or maybe more accurately from a very formative period of movie-watching in general.

Jon Brion is the defining sound of that period for me; Magnolia, Punch Drunk Love, Eternal Sunshine, I Heart Huckabees

@spacecadet, I've never seen Boogie Nights, largely due to prudishness at the time. I think it's a close call between TWBB and Magnolia. You're probably right though.

@zuko, same here. It was one of a group of films I started to appreciate for more than just whether they entertained me or not. It was also early in my DVD ownership (those two things are related).
