Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood Review

Drop file here to send
By host - kelly.johnes
25 years after he won the Palme d’Or for “Pulp Fiction,” Quentin Tarantino is back at Cannes with his most recent film, “Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood.” It’s wonderfully nostalgic, from its throwback soundtrack and light-up signs to the pastel cars that skirt down the streets, and creates a fantastically detailed picture of the changing scene of 1969 Hollywood. With a few self-referential jokes thrown in the mix, the film is a lot of fun — with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio together, how could it not be? — that is, if you can overlook the problematic gender and racial politics Tarantino perpetuates.
This discussion is set to be extendable. After it expires, the content will remain, but all guests will be removed. After that if any guests decide to join it, more days will be added to the discussion

Things work out well in a movie? That must be the movie within the movie, because if anything works out for the characters in a QT-movie, then it can't really be a QT-movie.

Well, it's a Tarantino movie. He often makes great scenes but rarely great movies.

I’ll watch the movie in July when it is released to the general public. Until then I’ll unfollow The Economist as I don’t need spoilers or opinions.

It was actually dull. I almost fell asleep half way through this picc. Tarantino never had to say anything, but he was entertaining. Now he is just an old man lost in memories and pose.

That's pretty much the hallmark of QT.

If it has mood and atmosphere, then it is not empty. Today few films outside action blockbusters are worth going to the cinema. Tarantino's movies are some of those few exceptions. You can call it movie magic, or soul - all Tarantino's movies have it, even the most poorly reviewed ones.

So it s an actual movie.... all marketing and for your eyes to connect but you don’t need a brain. A good movie making your brain sparkling is getting hard to find these days... QT makes action movies, visual with characters and bloody scenes (for most) that s the spirit.

In the age of Fast and the Furious, I will take an “empty” Tarantino movie any day of the week.

Untrue. Now the new cool is doing gray, sad ending movies. Because its"real life". Yeah, I got one of those already.

Just like every Tarantino film. All style, no substance. He is so 'cool'.

Complaining that the Hollywood movies are not philosophical and metaphysical? Maybe you have to watch some European movies, and read Jean Paul Sartre.
