Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★½

The closest we'll probably get to Tarantino tackling a biopic, he instead ops for a fairy tale-esque throwback to the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood: a period Quentin seems totally nostalgic for with immaculate attention to detail and intoxicating atmosphere that the characters (along with ourselves) soak in and exist with for a majority of the film.

It's thrilling to witness how fast and loose the film's structure and story are played yet this approach is imbued with a deep sense of purpose and intent. This feels like a movie only Quentin Tarantino can create and excellently master. I don't know if it's his best film, but it's one of his most bold and exciting in years. I can't wait to rewatch it over and over and discover its intricacies.
