Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★

I some how booked us into a closed caption screening last night, despite no mention of it on the website or tickets. The film started with our two leading men being interviewed with their dialogue written out at the bottom of the screen and I thought, oh hello what’s QT up to here...then we had ‘birds cheeping’ and it dawned on me I’d need to put up with this distraction for the 2 hours and 40 minute run time. Thankfully after half an hour or so I successfully tuned out the dialogue and found some enjoyment at the announcement of what classics were being played and such text as ‘dramatic music intensifies’. Still, an experience nonetheless. I’ll probably talk about the film on a rewatch... sans captions.
