Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★

2nd viewing, 1st since the theater. I've gotta say, I've made a complete 180 on the editing. I did not like it the first time around. Some of the cuts didn't make sense, the pacing was slower, the continuity wasn't perfect and it was distracting. But I think this time, it really clicked for me that this is a fairy tale. It's told from the "reader's" perspective, and from the reader's memory. Kinda like The Irishman! All about how we remember the good and the bad times.

Isn't it crazy that Tarantino and Scorsese both made their most mature, most reflective, and longest movies this year, both critically acclaimed and well liked by audiences? 2019 was a good year for movies.
