Oh how I love thee. Sofia is on a whole other level right now. It's so great. Really looking forward to watching this. You must watch out for Elle Fanning. She already light years beyond her sister. Watch Phoebe in Wonderland for proof. This looks so great!
I just re-watched Magnolia. What a movie! Can't even begin to describe how well executed this film is. The structure, so sound. Watching it again now is making me love PTA more. It's futile to really try to give credit to this film in words. Just something you have to see to believe. The performances that are rendered are so outstanding it's unbelievable. Here's the trailer so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about.
"Even though I was enamoured with film at college, I took literature classes and was reading a lot of great novels. Film and great literature seemed to feed two very different appetites for me – until I saw 8½. It was the first movie that bridged the two and opened up the idea that a film can have the complexity of a great novel. … I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie like it, it seems to capture what memory – or the reverie of reliving a memory – feels like. The experience is almost tangible." - Rian Johnson on 8 1/2
