Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★

fell asleep in the first half & when i woke up, i felt like i didn’t miss anything. it was so mind-numbingly average & was the first time in a while i felt myself actually bored during a viewing experience. i didn’t understand any of the artistic choices - why there were so many long takes, low shots, quick cuts back & forth to scenes that were just jarring & confusing - and i frankly had no idea what the movie was trying to say. also what does a girl have to do to see ONE (1) close-up of Margot Robbie or that girl from the Kenzo perfume ad without feet in it jfc

this was self-indulgent af & if it were from any of the directors i actually respect, i probably would’ve eaten it right up but instead it was just :/ meandering and pointless. and i’ve seen movies “without a plot” that were still interesting tyvm

ALSO can we just agree that Nice Guys is the best movie about LA? thx
