Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★★

Easily QT's most mature film to date, and yet made without sacrifice or compromise. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood may be another slice of revisionist history, but this time it's tempered by, dare I say, an almost magical realism, and for the first time in the director's career of looking back, nostalgia becomes suffused by a surprisingly elegiac tone. I don't know about you, but I've never felt this emotionally satisfied from one of his films, except for maybe Jackie Brown. This ninth feature is a note perfect love letter to the City of Angels that ranks up there with Mulholland Drive, Sunset Boulevard, and any other film that lives and breathes the essence of one of the most unique and storied places on Earth. I never thought I would say this, but QT's upcoming tenth film could very well be his best.
