LICORICE PIZZA is the story of Alana Kane and Gary Valentine growing up, running around and falling in love in the San Fernando Valley, 1973. Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Phantom Thread), Licorice Pizza tracks the treacherous navigation of first love.
Raised in the San Fernando Valley, Alana Kane (played by Alana Haim) and Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman) have never met before picture-taking day at Gary’s high school. Alana is no longer a student but is a young woman seeking to find and define herself beyond her uninspiring job as a photographer’s aide. Gary has already established himself as a working actor — and is quick to tell Alana this in an attempt to impress her. She is amused and intrigued by his preternatural confidence and they strike up a heartfelt, if awkward, rapport. Seeking to strengthen this connection with Alana, Gary wangles an opportunity for her to be his chaperone during a New York television appearance; on impulse, she agrees.
The TV appearance does not go exactly as planned and once back in California, each of them questions their future. Over time and as their friendship grows Gary pursues career opportunities outside of acting, and becomes a budding entrepreneur selling waterbeds and opening a pinball arcade; and Alana gives serious consideration to her future (including a foray into acting). On their own or side by side, both Gary and Alana experience a series of epiphanies that are both uproarious and bittersweet: close encounters with a famous actor (portrayed by Sean Penn), a Hollywood producer (Bradley Cooper), and a local politician (Benny Safdie). Both self-aware and at loose ends, Alana and Gary blaze through a time and place that carry for them the thrill of first love, entering adulthood, and the discovery of newfound potential — perhaps, most of all, in each other.
This is a pleasant tale of love and unselfishness told through the glaring lights of the field where dreams are made. Even if you don’t know who Kurt Warner is or aren’t a big fan of football, you’ll enjoy this movie because it leaves a good impression on its audience. The way “American Underdog” is laid out is moving and, in the end, leaves you with a warm feeling inside. Not half bad for a tale about a guy throwing around the pigskin, wouldn’t you agree? You will.
Thought to have been performed as far back as 1606, Oscar-Winning director Joel Coen (Fargo, Inside Llweyn Davis, No Country for Old Men), now gives us his interpretation of the Shakespeare classic “Macbeth.” Knowing the films he has been a part of, it won’t be a true revelation that this, too, is spectacular. It’s exquisite.
Director Sean Baker (Tangerine, The Florida Project), who wrote “Red Rocket” with Chris Bergoch, continues to impress. For his 2015 indie film “Tangerine,” he and Bergoch gave us an in-depth story of the life of sex workers who enjoy their orange juice and donuts. As well as being tumultuous, its slant turned out to be rather raw and captivating.
We start the film when the main character, J.R., is relatively young. Then, we flash forward and back. He and his mom are moving back in with her parents at the start. Used to it only being him and his mom, you see how close they are, yet he tells her that he “likes having people” in his life now.
