Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

"Hey! You're Rick fucking Dalton, don't you forget it."

A movie about making movies by a guy who loves movies more than anything. An exploration love-letter to one of the industry's golden eras with stunning lifelike set design and work that catapults you into 1969. Tarantino being well known for his clever writing and stylish violence dials it back, and for the better. A truly mature effort channeling his inner temptations for a bigger endgame. Tangled and indulgent yet complex and fascinating, he wears his heart on his sleeve while reminding us it does not matter if you're the best at what you do, as long as you give it all you have.

The cast is as A-list as advertised. Leo gets to dive into a wide range of his abilities, Robbie has an eerie resemblance of Tate and Brad Pitt gets one of the coolest roles in awhile. A who's who of character actors tastefully accompany them to help deliver one of the most charming, funny and at times beautiful(?) QT features yet. Also have to note how well handled the Manson Family murders were. See it on the biggest screen possible.
