Licorice Pizza

Licorice Pizza ★★★½

I’m sure the extra star will come with repeated viewings. There’s something about capturing Hoffman on the cusp of leaving childhood for young adulthood (but older than his years) and Haim just in the throes of early adulthood (but so much younger than her years). It’s all a mad rush, and all the running perfectly encapsulates the feeling of diving headlong into a new stage of life. Perfectly captured by PTA and Michael Bauman. It’s light and rough and raw and fine.
