Once upon a time in Hollywood, one of the Quentin Tarantino’s greatest movie, is a movie which will give you a pure cinematic experience guaranteed. The random ideas are indulged together to rewrite a history.
Tarantino is the master of bringing actors to their full potential.He makes you feel like you know these characters personally. He is a genius when it comes to storytelling and making such a big movie like this its downright the most amazing time consuming well thought out project in Hollywood.
Plot – Leonardo DiCaprio plays Rick Dalton, a washed up action star, who’s trying to salvage his career while providing enough work for his personal assistant and stuntman Cliff Booth played by Brad Pitt. Margot Robbie also stars as actress Sharon Tate, who lives next to Dalton in the Hollywood Hills. We’ll follow all three characters as they navigate their ways through parties, studios, and even some cults as they try to find or keep their place in show business.Story is low at times, keeping the audience engaged, filled with little nuances and dark humour.
Acting – Absolutely brilliant acting. Leo’s performance will surprise the audience. He’s hilarious and sympathetic and undoubtedly, delivers top notch acting. Brad Pitt’s acting is sensational too tho Margot has not much to offer and is heavily underwritten .
The movie delivers an outstanding genuine work from cinematography to soundtrack to setting. Definitely a treat to watch for cinephiles .
The movie will go over your head if you do not know who Sharon Tate is or the impact of Manson’s murder in what’s considered as golden era of Hollywood.
There are lots and lots of references from Tarantino’s previous work, from homage to the forgettable gems of that era. Probably that’s what Intended as well- “to immortalize the golden era of Hollywood as if it never ended.”
