    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    A more bittersweet historical fiction than Tarantino's previous few. If those films expressed their regret for the past through fantasizing about righteous vengeance, ...Hollywood takes a more melancholy approach by daring to imagine if history skirted past tragedy entirely. All the same, there's a knowing irony to the fact that our protagonists, Rick and Cliff, can't avoid irrelevance forever. Only Sharon gets to be immortal, because she is myth - but here, she's briefly granted humanity.

    ★★½

    This gets a lot of praise by virtue of being one of three films your mom has ever seen about racism.
