    Licorice Pizza


    Sometime in late-December, after attending the very first public screening of the film, I made a vow that I would revisit Licorice Pizza at the same theatre, on the same print, at the same seat, on the final day of its Toronto 70mm theatrical run. It's nice to re-experience this film, even with the viewing being a rather grim reminder of Anderson's subliminal sociological critique. The audience this time around was uncomfortably dead; a crowd suitably silent for the final…

    The greatest threat to modern cinema isn’t streaming services, comic book flicks, or even trend-setting cinematic universes…

    It’s the rise of the Oscar-bait biopic.

    Taking the life of an influential figure, and minimizing their entire career into a cramped two hour-sub run time seems ludicrous. The existence of this genre to begin with, is simply meant to pander towards nostalgia driven elders, who crave for cinematic fantasies to re-live their idols of yesteryear. In 2019 alone, we have films based…
