Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

i am not always a huge tarantino fan but i think this is my second favorite of his movies after 'inglourious basterds.'

dicaprio will get the lion's share of the acting kudos - and don't get me wrong, he's fantastic - but i really hope people don't sleep on brad pitt, who was phenomenal.

no real spoilers, i hope, but the last 15 or 20 minutes are SUPER violent/gory, so if that's not your thing, be warned.

again, no real spoilers. i hope: there was one section of the movie that i didn't love; it involved a ton of expository voiceovers and felt like it was done that way in a "tell don't show" effort to save some running time of what is an already two-hour-and-forty-minute movie.

lastly, i do have to say that thanks to film critic jordan hoffman i was primed to look for shots of feet, and holy crap there were so many it was absurd.
