LWLies 92: The Licorice Pizza Issue – On Sale Now!

IIn the new issue of LWLies, my august colleague Hannah Strong interviewed writer / director Paul Thomas Anderson and our cover star Alana Haim about the duo’s bubbly new film, Licorice Pizza.

She asks Anderson if there is an interconnection between the worlds in which her films take place. Is the San Fernando Valley from Boogie Nights or Magnolia or Punch-Drunk Love the same San Fernando Valley we see spread out in front of us in Licorice Pizza? His answer was no, but not categorical. The way it reads is, “I don’t think so, but very happy if you do.” And yes, we do.

Perhaps more than any of his films to date, Licorice Pizza is a landscape film, where carefully calibrated details in the background serve to heighten the drama in the foreground. It’s the story of two free-spirited young people – Haim and Cooper Hoffman – who have a connection and try to discern through the length of the film if it is love.

Anderson cited films such as George Lucas’ American Graffiti and Amy Heckerling’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High as inspirations, and this is evident not only in the emphasis on the thunderous antics of its playful protagonists, but also on the structure. episodic and almost experimental of the film.

In the spirit of our cover film, for this issue, we have chosen to exist in the world that PTA built for us, sending the reader back to California around 1973 to experience the cultural ups and downs of that much-vaunted era. . Our goal was to produce the ultimate sanctuary of Anderson’s work, and we hope this issue is as fun to read (and explore) as it was for us to make it. And for those who love Easter eggs, hang on to your hats …

On the cover

We’ve been a fan of the illustrator for a long time Tim mcdonagh, with whom we collaborated on our 2014 illustrated book What I Love About Movies. Lucky for us, Tim is a huge fan of PTA and therefore enjoyed the chance to dive deep into this new movie and his entire cinematic universe. The portrait of Alana Haim on the cover is supported by a torn page of classifieds, setting the visual tone for the remainder of the issue.

Illustrators inside the issue include Beth fenton, Beth morris, Nick taylor, Raya deussen, Jess alexander, Jake smithies, Simon hayes, Sergeant Stéphanie
