Frank TJ Mackey – I love Magnolia. It’s a beautiful, emotional, messy masterpiece. My favorite plot thread by far is the Frank TJ Mackey one. Unlike most movies with multiple plotlines, Magnolia doesn’t skip over story beats that you presume happened so I knew that it would actually work on its own. I went back and forth with the frogs but ultimately decided to keep this edit more grounded. I love the original ending because it works thematically with all the stories but it felt off when this is just focused on Earl’s death and everything that affects. This is a fanedit which focuses only on the Frank TJ Mackey storyline.
