Jordan’s review published on Letterboxd:
“I didn’t go to film school, I went to films”
Oh it shows Quentin, it shows.
-Lena Dunham’s appearance killed my vibe harder than Sharon Tate.
-If this is supposed to be a fairy tale history of Hollywood, why didn’t Roman Polanski get killed?
-Woody Allen too
-But maybe if Tate wasn’t killed, Polanski wouldn’t have been a child diddler?
-Roman Polanski really dressed like Austin Powers and managed to cuff Sharon Tate what the hell?
-If this were 1989 instead of 1969 it would feel a lot like Stranger Things but because Valley of the Dolls and Sergio Corbucci are less marketable than Ghostbusters and Spielberg, it’s less irritating.
-I keep going between 3 and 3.5 stars.
-Revisionist history and grindhouse violence works in his previous films because those were emulations of a particular genre film.
-As someone with a deep admiration for 60s American film, culture, and history, this should’ve been my shit.
-Was this an excuse for Tarantino to dress up LA to look like the 60s and play around and pretend?
-Still mad about Lena Dunham
