    Licorice Pizza


    Overly underwhelming. Made for 38 year-olds that long to be 20. A perception of cute and quirky that wants to be loved, not to expose. Featuring a runtime that even bores its fans, misogyny and racist jokes - but only slightly so we can play them off as self-aware while being the same old, same old.

    A fine movie for the 90s, today just obsolete - but it will give many people the warm feeling of their own self-exaltation of adolescence.

    Celebrated by arthouse lovers.

    What the hell, Megan Park. That's your debut?

    You had me bawling and smiling through those moments. Tackling trauma in such an uplifting way without romanticising it. Light-hearted while heavy and not afraid to embrace both. It made me feel so much. Made me laugh, cry, feel scared, feel thrilled, smile. And understand so much. Touching those nuances what it means or not means to heal, or to handle.

    Beauty in the slightest movements. Stabbed my heart deep in how it showed the relationships, family, friendships. Real, raw.

    Jenna Ortega and Lumi Pollack.

    I'm having a really hard time moving on.

    When there are more social connections than can fit a single life.

    Astonishingly well made: acting, view, moments.

    So Nolan really wanted us to know that Oppenheimer fucked. Note taken.

    (aka Nolan still can’t write women)

    I adore it when a movie these days commits to be that nuanced, low key and gentle. A charming, bright and humorous tale that hits the feels at times but stays away from the megalomania and abundance of our time.

    A little gem for our 30s when we feel 20.

    (And the way better age-difference love story... looking at you, Licorice Pizza, full of disdain.)
