RetroHound’s review published on Letterboxd:
Good night, this film is 2 hours and 40 minutes. Which is ok, if there's a plot, or some action. I spent most of this movie asking, "What's the point?" Well, we get to the point at the end, but it did not need to take 2 hours and 40 minutes to get there.
I went into this not really knowing anything about it, so every time they showed Sharon Tate, my stomach got into knots. But this is a "what if" and I got watery eyes at the end, thinking, "if only." The actress they got to play Tate was stunning, as she should be, I guess. I really liked how she was so excited to be in films, it was still new and fun for her.
The film was beautiful to look at and had a great soundtrack. But, I think those are givens with Quentin Tarantino.
Right after it started my wife came in and I said it has Leonardo Dicaprio and Brad Pitt. She said she likes Brad Pitt. I said, "He hasn't said anything yet." She said, "He doesn't have to say anything for me to like him." When he took his shirt off, I almost called for her to come back in the room. I could have taken off my shirt and given her a comparison. Maybe that isn't such a good idea. I'm glad I didn't do it.
