Four years on from mixed critical reviews of The Hateful Eight. Tarantino’s ninth feature provides us with a mature, visually stunning and nuanced piece of filmmaking. One that holds your attention, despite its slower pace. While combining truly stunning cinematography with beautiful character driven performances. Not only submerging you in a hypnotic mix of fantasy versus reality. But also creating genre defying piece of cinematic art.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood feels like a reflective thought piece. With Tarantino pointing his lens at a Hollywood studio reverberating in a changing world. Reflecting both the light and darkness of a city built on dreams and fantasy. While also reflecting the ultimate mid life disappointment of the hopes and dreams we create in youth
Director: Quentin Tarantino
