'Lost Daughter,' 'Licorice Pizza' top AP's best 2021 films
The Associated Press' film writers picks for best movies of 2021:LINDSEY BAHR:1. "Licorice Pizza": It's a rare film that makes you nostalgic for a time and place you never knew, but Paul Thomas Anderson's breezy, sunny "Licorice Pizza" does just that for the San Fernando Valley of Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman) and Alana Kane's ( Alana Haim ) youths. "Licorice Pizza": Paul Thomas Anderson's shaggy-dog story of self-discovery in '70s San Fernando Valley feels to me like a loose, easy-breathing culmination for Anderson, a virtuoso filmmaker here at his most tender and organic. "Licorice Pizza," crammed with the comic chronicles of adolescence and young adulthood, is the most lived-in movie of the year. If Anderson resurrects '70s California in "Licorice Pizza," Hogg's film is just as detailed in its '80s London.wftv.com

At an opening-day press conference, Blanchett was asked whether she feared coming to Italy, the first country in the West to be slammed by COVID-19. Hospitals, cemeteries and morgues were overflowing in nearby Lombardy, which became the epicenter of the outbreak in Europe.
