Hollywood Gold

Well we all know that Tarantino is one of the all time greats, but this is just pure gold. I finally got around to see “Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood” and I had done everything I could to avoid spoilers. Therefore, the meaning behind the title of the movie only dawned on me as I saw the last few scenes. I will not blow it here if you have not seen it but this is one of the best films that I have ever seen. The pure nostalgia alone is glorious, and the soundtrack (that I have mentioned before on this blog) is carefully picked in scenes that takes you back to Tinseltown in the late 1960s. Hell, there is enough art references (real and imagined) in this movie to send me to heaven. The movie posters alone… But back to the story. When you have Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate you just know that things are going to turn ugly. If you know anything about that dark twisted night (and you need to know what happened there back in the day to be able to fully appreciate this) you will certainly have this sense of unease throughout the movie. Add the characters of Brad Pitt (suspected wife murderer) and Leonardo DiCaprio (waning TV star living next door to Tate) and you find yourself in a wirlwind that takes you ever closer to you know what…

Nice to hear some early Deep Purple in this too.
