Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★★

So, so good. Such rich character work and exquisite period detail brought to life. DiCaprio’s Rick and Pitt’s Cliff are beautifully realized characters, words transformed into beings, inhabiting a world between fantasy and reality. This is a pure, sweet, genuinely touching film, about failure, old friends, and the magic of movies. Margot Robbie by far gets the scene of the year, sitting in a movie theater, taking in the audience’s reactions to her. Smiling, purely joyful at the thought of her work bringing laughter to people. It’s just magnificent. Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood serves as a beautiful character piece telling of aging careers, changing times, and strange summer nights. Might be Tarantino’s best.
