Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★½

Way less stylized than the rest of Tarantino's films, and that's generally what the appeal is for me.

I liked all the vignettes of films and TV shows we see within the film more than the movie itself, and felt mostly unattached to Rick and Cliff. (Rick talking about the book with the little girl was so heavy handed I wanted to die, but I did really dig the couple scenes with him that followed.)

The stuff with the Manson family in the first couple acts was really unsettling and was by far the most interesting part of the movie for me, but I was disappointed that the third act made them into a joke.

I think the ending was probably the best part of the movie, even if it did leave just a tad bit to be desired.

6.8/10
