Licorice Pizza (Featuring Joe Black)

by | Dec 27, 2021 | 0 comments

On the 219th episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black joins me for a look at Paul Thomas Anderson’s 9th film, Licorice Pizza. A look back at life in Hollywood in the 70s, it’s a joyful romance that exudes the feeling of being alive. It’s also my favorite movie of the year. Puzzle pieces include Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, American Graffiti, Rushmore and Almost Famous.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for Licorice Pizza and the movies we discuss!

Writer / Director – Paul Thomas Anderson

Starring Alana Haim, Cooper Hoffman, Sean Penn, Bradley Cooper, Tom Waits, Benny Safdie

United Artists / Focus / BRON
