“If Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Licorice Pizza” doesn’t make you happy, the trouble may be that you’re clinically depressed, anhedonic or don’t care for movies in general.” – Wall Streeet Journal

“Licorice Pizza delivers a piping-hot, jumbo slice-of-life look at how it felt to grow up on the fringes of the film industry circa 1973, as seen through the eyes of an ambitious former child actor plotting how to follow up his early screen career.” – Variety

“It’s such a delectable film: I’ll be cutting myself another slice very soon.” – Guardian

“[Paul Thomas Anderson] has sifted through a haze of wildly embellished tales and half-forgotten memories — and pieced together something that feels more concrete, more achingly, tangibly real, than just about any American movie this year.” – Los Angeles Times

“A lived-in, even tangible, period experience — you can practically smell the maraschino cherries in the cocktails and feel the shag carpeting beneath your feet.” – The Wrap

“Licorice Pizza finds Paul Thomas Anderson shifting into a surprisingly comfortable gear — and getting potentially star-making performances out of his fresh-faced leads.” – Rotten Tomatoes

“Paul Thomas Anderson’s sunniest movie yet, this San Fernando Valley palimpsest is so buoyant and bubbly, it practically floats off the screen.” – Time Out

“Creating a character whose warmth and humanity are tempered by hilariously deadpan humor and prickly detachment, Haim makes one of the most exciting screen debuts in recent memory.” – Hollywood Reporter
