Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★★

Easily my favorite of Tarantino's since INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. One of the friends I saw it with made the comment that it was (with the obvious exception of the last twenty minutes) surprisingly light and pleasant, and I completely agree -- in a strange way, it's perhaps his softest film, and a complete joy at that. It's terrifically funny, playful, and energetic - loved every second of it.

Shoutout to the Angelika in Dallas for projecting this on 35mm. Looked gorgeous (plus, no horrible twenty-minute roll of trailers)
