"Licorice Pizza (PTA, 2021)"



Fucking terrific, duh. So sweet and pure and hilarious, ducks down so many unexpected and delightful paths (as all PTA movies do). Some of the sequences are fall-down funny-- the Bradley Cooper sequence got multiple applause breaks from my theater.

And the cast is flawless. Can't imagine we'll see a better leading actress performance than Alana Haim's. And Hoffman is so wonderful-- you can see his dad in his smile sometimes, and it adds a hint of wistfulness to an already nostalgic affair. Heard at least one critic call this PTA's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," and while that's obviously not perfect for many reasons, the affection for the place and era definitely shine.

Will easily be near the top of my favorite movies of 2021, if not at the very top.
