    There aren’t very many filmmakers whose releases feel like events. When Tarantino’s love letter to cinema Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood released in 2019, it was an event. When David Fincher’s Citizen Kane-inspired Mank hit Netflix in 2020, it was an event. Whenever Martin Scorsese’s film does the same in 2022, it will certainly be an event. Another filmmaker with this status is Paul Thomas Anderson, and his new film Licorice Pizza is certainly an event film.

    Many of the great works in modern film history surround the comedown. When a charismatic character feels the repercussions of a life filled with poor decision-making. Henry Hill had to live a life in witness protection after ratting on the mob, Mark Zuckerberg lost many of his friends and chose a life of greed and isolation, and, hell, Godfather II is all about the fall of Michael Corleone.

    so many people at the peak of their powers. ruffalo, gyllenhaal, non-iron man downey, and arguably even fincher. in the wrong hands, this may be a dumpster fire. the way it transitions from character to character in each act is brilliant and so tough to pull off.

    when people say filmmaking was far, far superior in the 80s and 90s, i remind myself that that's not necessarily true because of films like this. an absolutely iconic film.
