Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★

still very good! saw myself feel nostalgic for 2019 while watching this, love how this movie is rewarding with every rewatch when it’s divorced from all the constant discourse. there’s problems with this movie like every movie and tarantino is a strange dude who makes some strange choices (apparently he originally wanted cliff booth to win a fight with bruce lee in a landslide but brad pitt was rightfully like “... but that’s bruce lee”), but that doesn’t change that this is a very good movie at its core. 

there’s something magic about that final scene. people talk about margot robbie being underserved in this movie but i honestly feel like she did an incredible and very memorable job. she adds this light and kindness to the movie that really pays off when she finally meets rick dalton. we didn’t need to see her feet so much in that movie theater scene tho
