Licorice Pizza

Licorice Pizza ★★★★★

fucking miraculous. a genuine triumph on every conceivable level, so authentic and heartfelt and resonant and gorgeous and beautifully layered with the sense of pure immeasurable emotion only the medium of film can convey. perfectly captures the void of disillusionment that comes with the feeling that you’re a spectator in your own life, utilizing the smallest actions as a reason why you’re “mature” in order to prove a sense of self-fulfillment when really you’re still stuck drifting in that place filled with uncertainty and loneliness, and how the right person can help you escape it. gonna be thinking about this for a long time, and the inevitable hundreds of rewatches will only cement my love for it further. Cooper Hoffman would’ve made his dad proud here. give Alana the Oscar you cowards
