Hated Boogie Nights because it was long, ponderous and not very funny. Great subject matter but lame treatment... and half way through Andersson seemed to decide the movie needed pace and went all Scorcese. Hasn't he heard of cutting. Magnolia however I did like... Though once again it could have been pruned by a good half hour and Andersson was over indulgent in places. I actually felt Magnolia was a TV movie however... Nothing more than a well acted, well written and slightly quirky soap.
