Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

UK Release Date: 14 August 2019

Quentin Tarantino making a film about Hollywood is something we should all be very excited about. The director is never better than when working with Los Angeles as his backdrop – Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown and of course Pulp Fiction. But does this movement away from fiction, pulp or otherwise, towards distilling a real-life segment of Hollywood’s dark history, signify a new maturity in the director’s work? If the reports from Cannes, where the film premiered, are anything to go by then the odds are in his favour.

Leonardo DiCaprio returns after a four-year post-Oscar victory, post-The Revenant, hiatus, quite ironically as a failing alcoholic actor whose glory days are over. If that’s not good enough, Brad Pitt supports as his nonchalant stunt double, Al Pacino, his steely agent, and Margot Robbie, a doe-eyed Sharon Tate. It’s a modern classic in the making that already has a cult following, and it’s not even out yet.
