Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

Better the second time once you know where the story is taking you, you spend more time enjoying the experience rather than wondering what the direction the plot is headed in. You spend so much time with these characters that a rewatch brings about a far better run through than the first time. Everything starts to click, and it has occurred to me that this is most likely one of my favorite Tarantino films, trailing only his three masterpieces (“Hateful Eight”, “Inglourious Basterds”, and of course “Pulp Fiction”). “Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood” is truly the culmination of a masterful virtuoso’s bevy of cinematic expertise that was gathered over the years and gracefully placed into one highly stylized hang-out that paints a vivid picture of an actor’s life at the turn of the century. It works as a tribute to not only the glory days of hollywood but to the late Sharon Tate, who was as delightful as she was beautiful, and played to perfection by Robbie. This, all stands without mentioning the brilliance of Pitt and DiCaprio, whos talent on screen should come to no surprise to anyone.
