I’m The Only Juan’s review published on Letterboxd:
R.I.P. Sharon Tate, realized after finishing the movie that today is the anniversary of her death. Watching Tarantino’s films, I always know that his films are not everyone’s cup of tea, and this one is no exception. Especially with the real life Murders it’s based on and used for backdrop, but man did this movie work for me exceptionally. This is a director doing his testament of the exceptional neighborhood that is responsible of his love for films. I felt like he was gonna use Rick and Cliff as characters for the audience to follow through the Manson Murders, but Tarantino with is magnificent dialogue and extraordinary direction, he had me loving both of them by the start of the film.
The streets of ‘69 Hollywood ooze the high and low of American entertainment of the time. I love that he didn’t include more some characters, but one felt like it was on purpose and it bothered me a bit, yet the time that character had was well-handled, others May not agree with me on this, but I’ll post more in-depth on my rewatch. For now I will say that Tarantino shouldn’t stop, but his penultimate work will be among his best from his career, he leaves an extraordinary legacy and this one stand-out as his love for cinema.
