Movie Reviews

  • this hypnotically gorgeous, funny, romantic movie freewheels its way around from scene to scene, from character to character, with absolute mastery; every casual line, kiss, automobile-ride, set-up and joke is a joy; It's such a delectable film
    5 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • the movie introduces two fabulous lead actors, Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman, whose characters navigate awkward romance, colorful weirdos and various misadventures in an entertaining movie that captures youth in hilarious and poignant ways
    3.5 of 4 by Brian Truitt [USA Today ]
  • the air of carefree playfulness doesn't fully amount to rose-colored nostalgia, as Anderson sprinkles enough hints of danger, inequity, and societal breakdown throughout to lend his autobiographical jam session a sneaky depth of feeling
    4 of 4 by Carson Lund [Slant Magazine ]
  • relaxed and rambling, this lovable, hazy, sunny dramedy is likely Paul Thomas Anderson's funniest movie, and its seeming lack of ambition elevates it above some of his more challenging efforts
    4 of 5 by Jeffrey M. Anderson [Common Sense Media ]
  • Paul Thomas Anderson's ninth film, his shaggiest, most affectionate, is a charmingly loose love letter to the Valley of his youth; It's the performances of Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman that most lend “Licorice Pizza” its authenticity
    4 of 4 by Jake Coyle [Associated Press ]
  • Paul Thomas Anderson's masterful coming-of-age romance, "Licorice" is a love letter to an era, and more than that a feeling: a tender, funny ramble forged in all the hope and absurdity of adolescence, one wild poly-blend rumpus at a time
    Review rate : A- by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • Paul Thomas Anderson has delivered another highly entertaining movie, capturing a very particular time but also the enduring and universal nature of relationships developing in the most unexpected ways
    by Brian Lowry [CNN ]
  • creating a character whose warmth and humanity are tempered by hilariously deadpan humor and prickly detachment, Alana Haim makes one of the most exciting screen debuts in recent memory
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a big cartwheel of a movie, Paul Thomas Anderson's sweet coming-of-age yarn is free-spirited and fun as hell; Anderson's sunniest movie yet, this San Fernando Valley palimpsest is so buoyant and bubbly, it practically floats off the screen
    5 of 5 by Phil De Semlyen [Time Out New York ]
  • "Licorice Pizza" is anchored by the aesthetic meld Anderson has perfected in recent years, and by a pair of truly stunning debut performances that bring to life two of the most fully-formed, deeply complicated Hollywood characters in recent memory
    3.5 of 4 by Siddhant Adlakha [Observer ]
  • "Licorice Pizza" has its seductions, most notably Alana Haim. She's a fabulous creation; This is Haim's first movie but she has a seasoned performer's presence and physical assurance; she's a delight to watch
    by Manohla Dargis [The New York Times ]
