Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ½

Ok FINE I’ll bite: a whiny movie made by a whiny little baby whose main goal was to sneak in one last cry for attention before being washed away by time. A film for people (but mostly film people) who believe cinema was born in America and will die in its hands; more egregiously takes the easy way out by inserting the Manson family as a last-minute punching bag. So passive in its conversation that it almost becomes offensive—scratch that, it most certainly is—somehow feels the need to remind us that film was never a safe space for women, yet, just goes ahead and does the same, poor Margot Robbie. Things considered, he only seems to care about Margaret Qualley’s ass. Nice reminder that this culture should collectively grow up. Pitt is funny.

Would’ve made a neat Adam Curtis joint.
