Licorice Pizza

Licorice Pizza ★½

beautiful gowns. in my hater era, sorry. breaking my no star rule for this.

performances are good, there are nice moments of silence and tossed off remarks, but it’s in shambles the entire time and so so stupid. I could be very mean but just…this would be a whole lot better if it was less eager to impress, a hot boy trait sorely lacking from this mess. there’s just not a lot going on here, and PTA’s romanticism is shallow and too insecure to be charming in its goofiness. that running and colliding visual motif is the first time in over a decade he’s felt like a hack, and he’s no longer frenetic enough in his form to make those indulgences work.
