ONCE UPON A TIME IN… HOLLYWOOD
2019, Columbia Pictures, 161 min, USA/UK/China, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN… HOLLYWOOD visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age. With Margot Robbie. “All the actors, in roles large and small, bring their A games to the film. Two hours and 40 minutes can feel long for some. I wouldn’t change a frame. … You can feel Tarantino’s mad love for movies in all their disreputable dazzle and subversive art in every shot.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
