    *It’s just a shot away*

    I’ve reached the end of the film now. It’s just past sundown
    on Altamont Speedway, and nobody seems to remember
    what they came for—not the Stones, not the crew,
    and definitely not the woman shoved naked
    to the lip of the stage or that young girl

    More interested in character and world building than narrative formal structure, the first half is a bit of a “slow-burn,” but this pop-corn flick with a heart of gold leads to a totally kickass payoff. The cast is undeniably good top to bottom, but the one who makes the most of the “Tarantino Treatment,” is Pitt. His Cliff Booth is instantly iconic— a bold, beautiful, sun-soaked badass— and a role Pitt was born to deliver.

    Couldn’t shake the feeling this would make a great double feature with Inherent Vice.
