Hayden Welch’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’d be safe and warm if I was in L.A.
Quentin Tarantino was such a huge factor in myself getting into cinema and expanding my tastes so seeing a new film from him on the big screen is always a delight. For nearly three hours I was in the summer of love and everything was far out.
A groovy deconstruction of fame filled to the brim of golden charm with a bangin’ soundtrack to guide us along on a glitzy adventure through the Hollywood Hills. It’s genuinely one of the most immersive films of all time.
Margot Robbie grabs her role by the throat and refuses to let go for the entire runtime until one of the most unsettling end-cards you’ll ever see. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are electric together and hold their own making the relationship feel much more grounded and fleshed out.
It’s lack of a strong point A to point B structure lends itself to a wonderful dreamlike pace that matches the idealistic mood that’s been established.
