Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

Might bump this up to 5 stars depending on how my second watch goes, but already I know I love and adore everything about this movie. Did not expect to cry in a Tarantino film, but the ending did it for me. The Manson murders have haunted me ever since I was a little kid and first heard about Sharon Tate. So to see this beautiful revision of those horrific true events made me incredibly emotional. The final act was perfect. But what I appreciate most is how it honors the memory of Tate, Sebring, Folger and Frykowski in a way no piece of entertainment that has tackled this subject ever has. Just another gorgeous, nostalgic, and immensely satisfying film from Tarantino, thanks for renewing my faith in Hollywood (2019).
