Cinesthesia presents Magnolia (1999)

  • Thursday, January 4, 5:30-8:45pm at Central Library (Room 302)
Paul Thomas Anderson's meandering multi-story megasoap with a message is over-ambitious, self-conscious, self-indulgent, self-important, and clumsy into the bargain. But it's also one of the most enthralling and exhilerating American movies in ages (TimeOut).

Watch the trailer

Presented by Jason Fuhrman, Cinesthesia shows noteworty art films, neglected masterpieces, and obscure works by famous directors you will probably not see on a big screen elsewhere in Madison. First Thursday of every month.
