    The truth is I have not seen Chalamet in much more than the three pictures I mentioned so I only have those to go on. If he was in some other pictures where he was good that would make sense because the directors that cast him must have had a reason why they were interested in working with him.

    I already mentioned the film Over the Edge in this thread in relation to something else but the truth is I think Over the Edge and Licorice Pizza have a lot in common. The young first time actors playing leads, the point of view being that of young, sort of lost, kids, these kids interacting...

    I think this year has a pretty excellent bunch of pictures and that the list highlights how it is ridiculous to have to choose amongst them. You have small human stories going up against big science fiction films, beautiful genre films, and a massive musical. Period films, against present day...
