Movie Review: Once Upon a Time In Hollywood
With 160 minutes duration, the audience was invited by Tarantino to see Hollywood in the 60s era. Starting from the figure of Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth while filming, then visualization of views of the city of Los Angeles, cinemas, and vintage vehicles, to celebrities’ parties in that era. All of it really reflects the 60s era.
It was also during that era that Hippies were scattered on the streets of Los Angeles and would later lead to the top of the film. This film is also full of well-known stars ranging from Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Al Pacino, Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell, Lorenza Izzo, James Marsden, Bruce Dern, and Margaret Qualley.
Leonardo also appeared to be an actor who had dimmed his career. He appears depressed and feels useless, but here is the comedy. Brad Pitt as a very close friend as well as a stunt-double, complements Leo. Their chemistry really fits.
So the comedy in this film is formed between Rick and Cliff. Their conversation about their career will invite laughter, until the flashback scenes of the TV series played by Rick Dalton. Most gong when Rick with a flamethrower.
Not only that, you will also laugh when watching the scene of Cliff and his dog Brandy, Rick and an 8 year old girl reading a Walt Disney biography on the set and the peak of Cliff to the Hippies.
