Paul Thomas Anderson is responsible for some classics like Magnolia, Boogie Nights and There Will Be Blood.
The film has already broken records with bringing in more that any other Indie film at box office.
According to Variety, “From only four theaters in the country — two in New York and two in Los Angeles — ‘Licorice Pizza‘ brought in $335,000 in total and $83,852 per location, more than any other specialty film in nearly two years.
“In its first three days of release, ‘Licorice Pizza’ surpassed A24’s black-and-white drama “C’mon C’mon,” which previously held the record for best platform launch after generating $135,447 on five screens — averaging to $26,889 per location.”
Peter Debruge wrote, “‘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,”
