Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★

This is a very long, yet very enjoyable film by Tarantino. Like Inglourious Basterds, every minute felt justified in this film, and I was never bored throughout the runtime. 

The acting overall is pretty fantastic; Leo DiCaprio is spectacular in the lead role and Brad Pitt is a perfect accompaniment to him. Margot Robbie is charming as always and the rest of the supporting cast was great, I didn’t think there was a weak performance. I loved these characters and wouldn’t have minded seeing them for a while more.

The technical side of the film is incredibly solid as well. The cinematography helped the film continue to be captivating all the way through. The film took a turn in the 3rd act which made for an absolutely insane final 20 minutes.

I’m really glad that this film is as successful as it is and that quite a few people actually showed up to my showing. It’s just a shame that this lost in the box office to a soulless remake (which I don’t intend on seeing in theaters or supporting). I’d definitely recommend going to see this one in theaters, as it’s one of this year’s better releases as of yet and a great addition into Tarantino’s filmography.
