Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★

i did see it again this time and the more i watch it, the more i get the argument that anybody could’ve directed this. it’s a fair point that it really is no technical achievement especially for quentin. but the distinct writing and the nuanced performances still make this worth your time.

i could fall over and over again for the flawed character that is cliff booth, the comical yet heartfelt narrative of fading star rick dalton, the refreshing interpretation of sharon tate’s story, and the minutiae of life and vintage los angeles...all of these make for a dreamy exposition of a time long gone in Hollywood. it’s a love letter that i cannot seem to put down, and even a year later, still means a lot to me.
