Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

Arguably the most mature and refined film within Tarantino's filmography sees the esteemed filmmaker reflect on the nostalgic and feel-good era of the cinematic days that maybe never really was. It's characters are faced with all too relatable dilemmas in the industry but there's an undeniable glow at the centre of the film as Tarantino for the most part side-steps his more renowed indulgences in favor of something with more to say and the result is something even more effective which of course only means that the subversive finale hits the sense of violent subversion it's so clearly shooting for.
