    All flashy, shiny surface and bullet-headed tough guy bullshit but still one of the great ‘90s popcorn movies, as well as a fascinating window into what the ouvre of Quentin Tarantino (Screenwriter) might have looked like if Quentin Tarantino (Director) hadn’t kicked open the door to make his films himself. (Speaking of said window, so interesting how TRUE ROMANCE is still standing 30 years later while that other - higher profile at the time - QT-for-sale, NATURAL BORN KILLERS, has pretty much completely fallen off the radar. God I can’t imagine *that* thing has aged well.)

    One of those movies I’d be back to see again the next day. Would that it were so simple…

    Wonderful. A smile on my face through the entire thing. And this following PHANTOM THREAD is maybe one of my favorite directorial back-to-backs in film history. I can’t tell if I’m more in love with this movie, Alana Haim, or PTA’s oeuvre, but I’m definitely in love.

    Annual Christmas viewing. I’ve logged this movie an even dozen times on here now - and that doesn’t include my first viewing upon initial release and at least a couple more pre-Letterboxd. Almost certainly my most watched contemporary movie. There’s just no other movie that scratches this itch. (Though thankfully THE NICE GUYS comes within hailing distance.) And a Christmas movie to boot.
