“Once Upon A Time . . . in Hollywood”: Film Review & Podcast

Posted: July 29th, 2019 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

I’m a sucker for movies about movies.

I’m a sucker for movies about Hollywood and L A.

My life personally was changing in 1969, along with the shifting changes in culture itself. So I’m a sucker for films set at that time.

All of which is to say that I was predisposed to like Quentin Tarantino’s homage to that era and culture and place, “Once Upon A Time . . . in Hollywood.”

And truth is I love the movie even more than I felt I would.

It is a buddy movie, but more than that. It is the story of a budding Hollywood career cut short by the Manson horror, but more than that. It is a movie about the making of movies and the personalities involved, but more than that. It is a movie about the soundtrack of the time, but more than that.

It is a pop culturist’s dreamscape.

For significantly more details that underscore my unbridled appreciation of this truly entertaining movie, listen to the podcast below (Where I start out with a mistake of fact, saying Tarantino was in 9 year old in ’69. He was six, truth be told. Sorry):
