    Me watching this movie is proof that men cry too. This movie broke and rebuilt me, provoked feelings I haven’t felt in a long time, unearthed memories that I haven’t thought about in years. It shatters the ideal of traditional masculinity — the muscular facades, the dry-eyed masquerade.

As a viewer, you lose yourself in the glossy, petty, dirty facade of Hollywood and become stirred in the mesh-pot of the over-privileged, the talented, and the rough. With a crybaby Leonardo DiCaprio and moments of Brad Pitt beating up Bruce Lee, there’s not much to disappoint. It’s a true Tarantino Hollywood fairytale — one hundred ten percent.

    Oh what loneliness. I’ve always had a penchant for ghostly storytelling, especially when it deals with loneliness and grief. Hence my own I Walk With Ghosts. But using it as a tool for him to posthumously repair his relationship and his ideal of his parents was quite moving. It was delicately done, like a spiderweb woven so that you feel even the slightest tremor of movement — pulled into an emotional chaos with the simplest of apologies or the smallest of glances.

    It was best when it heavily leaned into the anachronistic humor and weakest when it tried to be a medieval time piece.

    The end was so rushed and nonsensical, but the movie was pretty fun overall. Surprised this is the first time I got a chance to watch it…
