    Licorice Pizza

    ★★★★½

    Besides the one thing that left a weird taste in my mouth (not the Japanese thing with John Michael Higgins because the payoff to that joke was actually excellent) I really can’t say that I didn’t love this, after everything else I watched.

    With me describing why I love anything by PTA there’s nothing else I can say except it’s just so good. Alana and Cooper pull off their chemistry for their debut roles, as well as the way they…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Everything about this film was beautiful, and also subdued in its performances and storytelling.

    ★★★★

    Watched in 35mm at the New Beverly w/ introduction by Wright and co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns

    Came in expecting the most in its visuals and technique, and it definitely met that. Wright and crew excelled in their mission in crafting a love letter to Soho in all its glamour and vices, the nightlife scenes intoxicated with energy in contrast to monotony of present daytime scenes as they merge together in a bad fucking trip. I was in awe the whole time…
