Let’s be real. Paul Thomas Anderson has never made a bad movie. In fact, when I ranked all of PTA’s films , it was hard to figure out what would be number one, since I had a three-way-tie in my mind with Phantom Thread , The Master , and There Will Be Blood . That said, I definitely like some PTA films better than others. For example, even though I understand the appeal of something like Inherent Vice , I didn’t enjoy it. That’s kind of how I felt about Licorice Pizza when I originally saw it. However, it seems to have grown on me. So much so that I’ve since reevaluated the film, and now I think I actually really like it. Here are five reasons why.

How can I not when the characters look so cool when that song starts playing ? Well, all this is to say that when it comes to Licorice Pizza , I find that I keep getting transported back to the film whenever I hear certain songs I was already familiar with, such as “Let Me Roll It,” by Paul McCartney and Wings, “Peace Frog” by The Doors, and “Life On […]
