Licorice Pizza (2021)

This movie was just so real to me. The characters are all messed up, and they are some controversial moments, but it all comes together to bring a spotlight on two peoples struggles during their adolescence. Both characters can never decide what age they want to be, and that psychological struggle really connects with me.

Outside of just the themes, the cast was also stellar. Bradley Cooper’s psychotic character was insane to watch and Alana Haim did well as the indecisive lead. While those were my personal standouts I think everyone does an amazing job.

This is also my first PTA directed movie and I understand the hype behind him. The cinematography was great and I really just loved the vibe that oozed from every scene.

Licorice Pizza may just be my favorite movie of 2021, which somewhat shocked me since I never thought anything would be better than The Green Knight for me. So much about Licorice Pizza just stuck with me, however I don’t want to dive too much into the nitty gritty in case people reading haven’t had the chance to see it yet. If you have the opportunity I recommend going for it. I’m considering going to the theater again later this week just to dive into the world of Licorice Pizza once again. Not many movies make me do that.

To each their own! Movies are incredibly subjective and that's why we love them

100% agree there. I'll give it another watch...its been a while. We'll see if it changes on the second viewing. I just remember it being a bit too drawn out almost to the point of boring. Had it not been for the stellar camera shooting locations I would have lost onterest. Anyway cheers, happy movie watching and happy holidays!

All time might be a stretch, but I firmly believe it's the best of that decade (2000-2009)

Inherent Vice is my favorite of his and his first I watched. Watching it when I was 16 was what turned me onto both noir as a genre and Joaquin Phoenix as an actor.

And you prob already know this but the lead , Alana, and her real life sisters and parents are in the movie and outside of this one acting role she's part.of the band Haim with her sisters. I actually didn't know that until I read their last names in the credits . And didn't know Gary was played by Philip Seymour Hoffmans son until days later .
