Licorice Pizza

Licorice Pizza ★★★★

"Are you fucking with me?"

Best Bradley Cooper part of all time. Every word that comes out of his mouth is hilarious. He could've left after his first scene in the driveway and it would've been the greatest performance of his career. He might be responsible for the funniest PTA scene of all time. Leo DiCaprio's dad stole my heart. I wish he could've been in Inherent Vice. His sequence is genuinely hypnotic. Although exquisite cinematography and wonderful score cue certainly help that. The cast is full of wonderful bit parts. Tom Waits is another especially high point. And John C. Reilly is one of the great extras of all time. I'm so happy PTA made something light. Maybe his gold standard as far as cinematography goes.

"Most of them are shits."
