Quentin Tarantino does to 1960s Hollywood to what Hail, Caesar! did for 1950s Hollywood.
Once Upon A Time in Hollywood is of the most reigned in Tarantino movies in terms of violence yet (although when the tension's there, it's palpable, and that doesn't mean it isn't over the top at times) which is surprising considering it's also one of his most self-indulgent films. The characters are real people doing their jobs - and this film's uneven pacing as well as a few others prevent it from being anything close to being a true masterpiece, but the performances are all excellent and the love and care that Tarantino has for this time period is clearly felt for good or and for ill.
I think I liked this one overall. It'll need multiple viewings to properly absorb and digest though.
