Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★½

After a lot of wandering around vintage Los Angeles in what I can only assume is an homage to Model Shop (were there an actual model shop in this movie, it would likely only feature photographs of dirty feet) and a bunch of self-indulgent moments where Tarantino's tangential cinematic masturbations derail things for large swaths of time, we finally meet with an ending so staggeringly effective (even if perhaps somewhat familiar) that any earlier flaws and bumps in the road along the way are instantly forgotten.
