So I've gotten some flack for calling this a flawed film. It was probably the wrong word to use because it's a bit inflammatory and my intention wasn't to argue about the merits of this film. I love Magnolia and especially this scene. Also, I recently tried to write a film review (for the film Nebraska) and I realized I'm no damn good at it. I just haven't logged the hours watching movies much less writing about them to effectively review them. But I've been fairly impressed with the dialogue in the comments. For Youtube, it's pretty damn intelligent and civil. So thanks for that.
