Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

Honestly, this film is easily one of the best of the year solely on the back of the scenes that Leonardo DiCaprio shares with Julia Butters as they ruminate on their profession. But combine that with a beautifully reconstructed Hollywood circa-1969, terrific performances all around and deeply respectful tone towards its subject matter that also is willing to play things rather askew for a far more impactful emotional payoff by the time it finishes, and it's hard not to find something to absolutely love about this.
