Luke Bauerlein’s review published on Letterboxd:
More interested in character and world building than narrative formal structure, the first half is a bit of a “slow-burn,” but this pop-corn flick with a heart of gold leads to a totally kickass payoff. The cast is undeniably good top to bottom, but the one who makes the most of the “Tarantino Treatment,” is Pitt. His Cliff Booth is instantly iconic— a bold, beautiful, sun-soaked badass— and a role Pitt was born to deliver.
Couldn’t shake the feeling this would make a great double feature with Inherent Vice.
