Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

I loved it. It's my feel good movie of 2019. Sit down over beers with me and I could talk about it all night. Languorous and wistful in all the right ways. The scenes with DiCaprio and the little girl were perfection, and hit me right in the heart. And I have zero issues with revising history in a fictional story. Sometimes we need the catharsis of "don't you wish this had happened instead?" Which is, in my opinion, the whole purpose of fiction. The purist meaning of the phrase "once upon a time..."
