Watching a lot a good movie is not a milestones, it's a honor.
Getting an ultimate charms by its leading act, an obscure summery theme, whimsy tale about teen angst and meandering coming of age, Licorice Pizza grows like a true jewel, richer as much as like you admired. I don't care how much fiction i could get, but obviously PTA nailed every essence on capturing whatever it takes to bring out a sophisticated romantic rhapsody using less formulaic exploration.
An instant classic!
Film from a woman, about a woman, for a woman.
This film's silent dissent is not only capturing our version of gender constraint and cultural bleak, but also waking us all to remind how reckless our societies are towards adolescent. It's sharp and poignant, tought-provoking yet still giving space for us to hopes.
Her reference to metaphorical love poem from late Djoko Damono, Rain in June perfectly carries the nuance of the story goes and genuinely potrays the journey of young girl seeking her place between her liberty, dreams, and her disputes reality. Thank you Kamila Andini for this powerful and important film 💜
