SS: 8/10 Unlike other Quentin’s film, but other Quentin’s film. It more like a mixtape, all Quentin elements you can find in this.
Once you heard the name, Quentin, the first thing in your head definitely are those massive violent scenes. Blood splashed everywhere, broken human parts laid on the ground… If you have those expectations, want to watch a classic violent Quentin film, then this may or may not let you down. I have to tell you that this film does have blood splashing and other violent parts, but this film is not about violence.
Although this film is based on the real incident, Tate Murder, but the story of the film is telling you a different story. By the way,
!!!DO NOT SEE, READ, OR WATCH ANY SPOILERS!!!
This review will have slight spoilers, just a wee little bit, please feel safe to continue your reading.
Quentin is still that Quentin, as I said above, all his elements you can find in this film. Quentin used two fiction characters show the whole picture of the last century’s Hollywood. In this film, you can see two normal Hollywood actors (Well, an actor and a double) set in this golden age background, they try to fight for their future, want to have a new start back into audience’s sight. But Hollywood is Hollywood. It never lacks talents. The director used these two “normal” guys and the story between them to rebuilt the 1960s Hollywood.
The story flow has its own speed, and each chapter connects to each other smoothly. The whole story from beginning to the end, every part of this film seize your attention tightly. But the length of the film could be a challenge for people who not usually watch a film for 3 hours, This film can easily lose him at some point of it.
Overall, this is a very classic Quentin style film and totally worth to spend your time on it. I can’t spoil, so, not much can say, but just go watch it.
