I used to hold so much delight in slandering this film, asserting how it’s an overrated snooze-fest, and lacks Tarantino’s genius that makes his other films so captivating.
But hey, people are capable of change!
Upon returning to Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood knowing full-well what Tarantino’s intentions were, I genuinely enjoyed myself. Sure, the plot isn’t necessarily grabbing you by the throat, but instead it just quietly focuses on the characters and celebrates wondrous era of their time. The two central characters go through their own little arc that leaves you quite satisfied, but the main focus here - what Tarantino wants you to do - is to just relish in the atmosphere of the golden era of Hollywood. Relish in the warm sunshine, the movie stars and the music. Look back on a time that will never be forgotten, in all of its glory and decay. Celebrate Hollywood.
