the Aimee Mann song which is reported to have inspired Magnolia. P.T. Anderson’s latest, and best film. Three hours long, this thing seemed to have a pretty polarizing effect on folks. “Loved It!” or “Too long and stupid.” or “What’s with the frogs?” Put me in the first group. You should see it. Really. I hadn’t even heard of Aimee Mann before seeing the film, but I’ve been listening to her songs non-stop since. See it.
