      Default Once upon a time in Hollywood



      This one is to be liked only by those immersed in cinema. The whole movie seems somewhat pointless and the violence that we associate with Tarantino comes only at the end . Were the hippies taking revenge for the character played by Brad Pitt's visit to the ranch where they stayed six months before when he questioned the owner of the ranch about them or it was just a coincidence that they came barging in to kill some Hollywood people six months later ? I was entertained since I am immersed in cinema. But not sure lay public will enjoy the film because basically nothing exciting happens in parts of the film . Just life of Hollywood folks in late sixties. The action comes at the end and is pretty violent with an entire hippie woman getting burnt to cinder by flamethrower . And the Male characters then act cool as if it was a normal day out for them .


      The two huge stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt enjoy real chemistry with each other in the film with the character played by Pitt playing chauffeur to Leonardo DiCaprio's character. Leonardo is a reel life tough guy but brad is the real life toughie ; beats up a character playing Bruce Lee in a scene smashing him in a car denting it....I mean he just smashes Bruce Lee , THE Bruce lee !! Wait till lee wakes up from his grave hearing this !!

      But the film falls short of action I felt . More a tribute to Hollywood of the sixties with shootings of westerns and all , and the character played by Leonardo crying out over his spent career....he's a has been and gets drunk a little too much. Also is shown drug intake with the warning about drug intake being dangerous flashing on screens in my country India.

      Margot Robbie plays Sharon Tate , a murder victim in real life . However she just prances about in miniskirts in this film and goes to watch her own film in theater to watch audience reaction to her scenes . But I thought the hippie girl who enticed the character played by Brad Pitt to the ranch was sexier and wore even more exposing clothes and moved her body more provocatively .

      Three stars out of five .

      Enjoyed it
      Expected more of that excitement, and those indulging conversations or operatic monologues.. I was kind of let down because I was excited for conversations more than anything.. BUT, besides that, it was enjoyable for what it was, felt solid. It certainly is a lot tamer than atleast the QT films I've seen before, surprisingly was very restrained..
      Everything else is great, the production design, the soundtrack, the socio-cultural milieu of the last 60s is perfectly set - older people like my parents found it particularly nostalgic. And, it almost feels plotless.
      There are many scenes that I liked.. it takes you to a different world, and even if you are a QT fan and you may feel let down, I think the film is atleast captivating enough from start to finish, despite the sparse narrative and inconsistent pacing. I found the second half of the film to be better.
      BTW, did I see Dakota Fanning?!

      Coming to the actors, all of them were good. This is one of the memorable performances by DiCaprio. Brad was great too.
      If anyone is reading this, my advice would be to forget that it is a QT film and just watch it
