    Licorice Pizza

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A hazy, delicious vibe tempered by an ending I didn’t love and some overall questions left unanswered regarding Alana. I know everyone is wringing their hands over the age difference and while I think it’s overblown, it is somewhat disappointing that it DID end up becoming a romantic relationship. Still, as a admitted hangout movie fanboy, I did really enjoy this.

    Feels like the capstone to a life’s partnership between director and actor. Sublime.

    ★★★

    Simultaneously repulsive and tender, Skins is a true original. Some of the shit in this film you can’t unsee but for those with a strong stomach and say, a fondness for transgressive, obsidian-Black Comedy, Skins is a real treat. FFA: Todd Solondz, John Waters, the darker side of Adult Swim’s live action stuff.

    Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

    ★★

    Actors are narcissists. Groundbreaking stuff. Two stars for the excellent performances, minus three for the extremely distracting, gimmicky camerawork and the awful, cliche-ridden script.
