Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino's latest all-star drama set in 1969 L.A. stars Leonardo DiCaprio alongside Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate and more.

Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) is a struggling former TV star, still struggling to make it in Tinseltown, alongside his former stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). But as Dalton's neighbour, rising star Sharon Tate (Robbie), will soon tragically learn, something more dangerous than the pursuit of fame is stalking Hollywood - a violent cult led by a charismatic figure promising the apocalypse...

It’s quite a departure from the iconic filmmaker’s intense last three movies, ambling along to its own groove, which may be harder to get on board with. But when you do, it’s a particularly pleasurable groove that for some fans will make for Tarantino’s most beloved work to date.

A romanticised history of Hollywood

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood No stranger to rewriting history, Tarantino takes on the Manson murders but it really is just a mere backdrop for what is a trip through the golden age of Hollywood with literal recreations of old film and television. Starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio; a veritable dream team of Hollywood heartthrobs and neither of whom...

What was the point?

What I said to myself about half way through watching Tarantino's latest was "where is this going?" that feeling continued all till the ending and I honestly feel I got as much out of the trailer as I did the movie itself. Its well made and acted, so on paper good, but its completely bloated and has no actual narrative. Plus a few controversial elements...

Sort of enjoyable

Yes two great actors, B Pitt and L di Caprio, they have such amazing timing. A long movie and a number of laughs. The violence was over the top.

Patient but rewarding

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is perhaps not Tarantino's best work but it is certainly a fantastic film, meeting the high standard he has set for himself over the years. Leonardo di Caprio and Brad Pitt both give outstanding performances in their leading roles and Tarantino develops deep, multilayered characters through his somewhat unconventional method of...

As always, Tarantino’s goal is to heighten the contradictions rather than resolve them, leaving us to guess whether he’s the idiot savant he’s so often taken for or whether he’s playing a deeper game than most of us can see.

This curious fairy tale may not be the truth, and it may prattle on too long. But when its stars align, and they let loose with their unmistakable shine, Hollywood movies do seem truly special again.

All the Tarantino hallmarks are here - the jet-black humour, fine-tuned dialogue, jukebox soundtrack and, yes, bare feet.

It sits at the mature end of Tarantino's work, bringing his tongue-in-cheek storytelling together with exquisite movie craft and killer lead performances from Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Tarantino luxuriates in bringing this prelapsarian heyday roaring back to life, and the effect is pure movie-world intoxication, laced with in-jokes and nibble-ably sweet period detail.

It's entirely outrageous, disorientating, irresponsible, and also brilliant.

[A] richly evocative, conceptually jaw-dropping, excessively foot-fetishising, inescapably terrifying and unexpectedly poignant movie.

Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood is uneven, unwieldy in its structure and not without its flat patches. But it's also a disarming and characteristically subversive love letter to its inspiration.
