Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

A love letter to so much of what Tarantino loves—which also happens to be what so many of us love. You can just tell Tarantino was overjoyed filming these scenes. And the result is an overjoyous film. The decade of upheaval and anxiety has never looked so blissful. It's a world that could only ever exist in the movies. Right?

Right now, it's impossible for me to say I didn't fully love this. I've been dying to see it since the first time I read reports on it (probably around late 2016 or early 2017?). I couldn't believe my luck when it was confirmed Tarantino was making a film about my favorite era in history, with some of the most enjoyable actors working today. I definitely have criticisms, but I'll save those for future reviews. For now, I'm just gonna relish in the fact that this movie exists, and I saw it.

Margot Robbie is perfect, and even that feels like an understatement.
