Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★★

Tarantino at his most self-reflective, self-indulgent and - dare I say - playfully poignant. Even though I hold some of his earlier work much closer to my heart, it has become increasingly difficult to stave off these creeping thoughts that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood could be his magnum opus. It's opulent, loud and ambitious in just the right way and the novelization truly amplifies this story with much welcome overtones to shape it into a bona fide masterpiece.
