Once upon a Time in... Hollywood plot

"In this town, it can all change… like that"

The summer of 1969. Rick Dalton, an actor on the decline, feels that his days as a leading man in TV series are gradually numbered. He finds comfort in his right-hand man and stuntman named Cliff Booth, who is also his driver and handyman. Rick watches with sorrow as Hollywood enters a new era, in which it just so happens that Dalton's house is right next to that of the famous Polish director Roman Polanski and his beautiful wife Sharon Tate.

Moderate Tarantino, but different.

Where Tarantino normally tells and tells and tells, the first two hours here are almost exclusively introduction. There is hardly a story to be seen, even for the final it is not all that important what happens before. It is more about creating an atmosphere and an image of the time. For two whole hours.

Although I'm not exactly a fan of the 60s, the first 30 minutes are quite nice. That Tarantino is skilled at resurrecting the past is not exactly news, with a few hits you will of course come a long way, but otherwise it is clear that a lot of detail has crept into it. However, two hours is four times too much, after a while I had seen it and then it starts to drag.

It also doesn't help that I recently saw a movie about Manson's ranch, so the entire segment of Pitt on the ranch is a bit useless. Furthermore, the film just wanders around a bit, so much so that at the plane scene I already thought the film was over. Think that there will be another 45 minutes after that, the real ending has yet to begin.

That part is also stretched way too long, with a fairly mediocre pay-off. But hey, something finally happens, here and there even a small smile could be shed, although Tarantino remains much too good for that kind of work as far as I'm concerned. The action looks mediocre and it ends with the extremities where you hope it would actually start.

Could have made the film half as long and I think it could have been just enough, but in the end it turned into another film by someone who likes himself so much that he can't get the scissors in his films. There are some nice scenes in it, but they drown in the elongated nothing.


Edit: oh, and for those who like to get old cows out of the ditch: the scene where Pitt beats up that hillbilly at the ranch looks like something straight out of Snatch. to come ... but just a little less all.

Everybody loves Pussy.

One of the better ones from Tarantino. Especially the first 2 hours are completely made for me. Little plot but above all a lot of atmosphere and more of a slice of life. This is just a collection of separate scenes that vary in quality, but provide enough fun moments and meanwhile manage to show the friendship between two men, although it hardly ever gets really funny or special - this is certainly not a second Pulp Fiction. Only the ending is genuinely funny with that hugely exaggerated and gory heist.

This is also a much more serious film with little hip language but remarkably serene and mature. Then it also helps that the film looks great in terms of production design, the sunny LA can be felt through the screen and in which the acting is decent.

Although considering the whole Tate in this movie it doesn't add anything - assuming you don't know her story and the surprise at the end isn't a surprise, but rather raises the question of what Tate's role was now[/spoiler ] - I thought those scenes with her were even better. Great to watch her watch herself in a movie theater, buy a book, walk around a party. Completely plotless but infinitely captivating. 4.0*
