Licorice Pizza

Licorice Pizza ★★★½

I enjoyed it, don't get me wrong, but honestly I didn't love Licorice Pizza like I thought I would. It's a nice slice of life film, but there wasn't really anything in particular about it that blew me away. Also the Asian accent jokes in the film were kind of cringey to me and I wish they weren't in the film. The ending was kind of meh as well in my opinion, especially considering the large age gap between the protagonists. I was expecting myself to give this film a higher rating since it looked kind of similar to Paul Thomas Anderson's older work, which I personally like way more than his newer work, but unfortunately I didn't. There's still certain things about the film I really liked and I respect the film, it's just not a film that really connected with me a ton. Sorry :(
