Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★★★

Fuck.
As someone who is not as enamored with QT as I once was, he really went there this time. This movie is goddamn delightful from start to finish. I honestly can't think of a single thing I would change. It is both Tarantino's most rambling film yet possibly also his most efficient. Not a moment goes to waste in this movie. Cliff Booth may be my new favorite character in the Tarantino canon. and while i need to stress the seduction of recency bias, this is a strong contender for my favorite Tarantino film. There so much about this film that feel so mysterious in its purpose but gradually unfolds into understanding. It's perhaps Tarantino's most meta film so far, but not in any obnoxious, 'I've run out of ideas' way.
