A much anticipated watch for me even though I’m a little wary of Tarantino because some of his violence can be pretty gruesome.
I have a tendency to totally not be able to stomach graphic violence anymore and seriously didn’t know what to make of Jango!
Anyhow Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is not for the average cinema goer that much is for certain.
(At least one third of the cinema had walked out before the movie ended!)
Coming back to the movie it being Tarantino’s supposedly second last movie the actual fan were of course totally worked up. The movie was superbly crafted. From recreating the entire 60s (I still don’t know how he crafted entire cities, roads, malls and so on with such perfection to casting read Brad Pitt, Leonardo Di Caprio and Margot Robbie the movie was a visual wonder.
Based upon the Movie Industry in the late 60s and the Manson Family crimes that rocked it, Tarantino spins a sprawling splendorous web.
The entire movie which was a little short of three hours long was the setting of stage for the final 15 minutes. They were gory, bloody, and simply cringe worthy but I’d still go watch it again.
