Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

“Hey! You’re Rick f*cking Dalton. Don’t you forget it.”

I’m extremely late to this party but wow, what a film. Part of me is still trying to figure out what it was all about, but the one thing I know for sure is I enjoyed every single part of it. A slow-burn that works flawlessly and builds up to an incredibly exciting ending.
There’s not much I can say about it that hasn’t been said yet, so I’ll just mention a few of my favorite things:
-The change of pace throughout the film is absolutely amazing as it fits the story perfectly, and makes it far more entertaining to watch.
-Brad Pitt and Leonardo Dicaprio’s performances were amazing. Their chemistry is palpable in every scene and I couldn’t get enough of it.
-Margot Robbie was perfectly cast as Sharon Tate, and although I wish we had seen more of her, I think the story is great just the way it was told.
-Not a single bad performance either. Every other supporting role brought something to the story.

Overall an incredible film that continuously gets better and better the more you watch. So much so that the nearly three hour runtime goes by in a heartbeat. We all have our own opinions on Tarantino but man, he knows what he’s doing when it comes to filmmaking. I wish I would’ve had the chance to catch this in a theater.
