A 15yr old guy and a 25yr old woman crushing on each other? honestly the movie wasn't bad, it'll have you questioning things. I'm just surprised a film like this was advertised and made it to theaters given how society is now. especially when everyone wanted Cuties banned from Netflix for essentially the same thing. I don't condone it but it's nice to see the depiction of an older woman dealing with a minor because people act like that never happens. if the genders were reversed I don't think this film would have even been greenlit

Anderson may be concocting his own personal flashback to a funkier age of innocence, but he lets these two make it their own double-act as well. Then he generously invites an audience in as well.

If you’re open to its unconventional, idiosyncratic flavors, Licorice Pizza is a wonderfully wistful and evocative ode to youth, done by a masterfully poised filmmaker who doesn’t really care if this ain’t your bag. All our welcome and invited, of course, but PTA’s mellow and balmy effort feels like it’s enjoying itself too much to care if you haven’t caught on to its whole-hearted drift.

In a world of algorithmically sorted content, Anderson’s ninth film, and his first since 2017’s Phantom Thread, is irresistibly hard to pin down: you’d have to go back around 50 years, to the likes of Hal Ashby’s Shampoo or Peter Bogdanovich’s The Last Picture Show, to find another that runs on a similar kind of woozy clockwork.
