I've been loving the hell of everything I've seen since Quentin Tarantino'S Once upon a time in Hollywood! The last trailer that was released was amazing and was followed by a lot of criticism from the public that had the opportunity to see the film at the Cannes Film Festival.
During a recent interview with Esquire, Tarantino compared his new movie with Pulp Fiction and he says it's his love letter to Los Angeles.
"This movie is the closest thing I've done to Pulp Fiction."
This has to do with the structure of the film and how various characters and story lines that apparently have no relationship, eventually intersect and intertwine in unexpected and fun ways.
Tarantino continues saying that it is his "most personal" film, and adds:
"I think of it as my piece of memory. [Cuarón] I had Rome and Mexico City, 1970. I had L. A. and 1969. This is me. This is the year that shaped me. I was six years old then. This is my world. And this is my love letter to L. A. "
I know we have a good idea of what the story of the film tells, but the article offers a new description of the story that offers a little more information. That description is the following:
It is 1969, a year of tremendous turmoil, not only on the streets of the United States but also in the places of Hollywood. The golden age is ending. The original study system, which has been a source of stability and structure for fifty years, is collapsing as the counterculture of children under thirty rejects traditional arguments and traditional male leaders. It's the year Easy rider Y Midnight cowboy Y Wild group Break big: movies that celebrate the anti-hero and change the definition of what a matinee idol is like. It is in this context that we find Rick Dalton (Leonardo Dicaprio), a declining star and a veteran of the television westerns. Rick, through a combination of ego and silly decisions, has lost his chance to become the star of the movie as Steve McQueen (Damian lewis). About the only thing he can count on is the friendship of his long-running double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). (Meanwhile, Rick's agent, played by Al Pacino, is trying to make him a spaghetti western).
Then, one night, Rick realizes that he could be at a pool party so he does not turn around his career. Her new neighbors, it turns out, are the golden girl of the moment, Sharon Tate (Margot robbie), and her husband, Roman Polanski (Rafal Zawierucha), who is, thanks to Rosemary's baby, The best director in the city. The stories of Rick, Cliff and Tate take place over three days or, as Tarantino says, in three acts: February 8, February 9 and, finally, August 8, the night Charles Manson (Damon Herriman) sent four members of their "Family" to the house next to Rick's on Cielo Drive in Beverly Hills, where they found Tate, the hairdresser Jay Sebring (Emile hirsch), and three others. It was the night when, as Joan Didion wrote, "the sixties ended abruptly … the tension broke … paranoia was fulfilled". Once upon a time … in Hollywood It is a film that vibrates with ambition, with the entire cast acting up to its talent, within a brilliant story.
I can not wait to see this movie when it hits theaters on July 26, 2019.
