Review: Once Upon a Hollywood

This review was originally published in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad...

We want see this movie so we can talk about it.

[Spoiler-free review]Here's the best way to know that you're inside an auteur's movie.It's impossible to imagine it having been made by anyone else.Quentin Tarantino's 10th feature film (creatively referred to as his 9th,presumably to give him a retirement out after his various "I'll quit after 10 films!"proclamations) is a fable about Hollywood.The movie begins in 1968 and ends in the summer of 1969 when the very pregnant actress Sharon Tate,Roman Polanski's new wife,and her house guests were all brutally murdered by the Manson family.Any number of filmmakers could have made a movie about that infamous year in California,but only Tarantino could have madeOnce Upon a Time … in Hollywood.

Historical events,real ones at least,have never been as sacred to Tarantino as the history of the movies.Whenever he's dipped into "history"--Django Unchained,Inglourious Basterds-- it's been as emotionally loaded prefab worlds from which to spin his own idiosyncratic yarns.  In this regardOnce Upon a Timeis no exception.To this viewer,though,his latest movie feels closer in spirit toPulp Fiction...

by Lynn Lee

Did you know that the 1970s TV show "Kung Fu"was based on an uncredited pitch by Bruce Lee?  According to Lee's widow,Warner Brothers liked (and poached) his idea of a martial arts master wandering the American West but passed him over for the lead role in favor of David Carradine.Warner Brothers claims they'd already had the concept for "Kung Fu"in the works when Lee proposed his own series (called "The Warrior") to the studio in 1971.  But even if you believe them,it's hard not to wonder what a version of the show that starred Bruce Lee might have looked like.

Nearly half a century later,Lee's daughter Shannon,director-producer Justin Lin (Better Luck Tomorrow,variousThe Fast and the Furiousinstallments),and writer-producer Jonathan Tropper (This is Where I Leave You,"Banshee") have created a Cinemax TV series that attempts to realize his original vision while updating it for a new generation...

"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" Teases

by Nathaniel R

After two absolutely hideous photoshopped posters (we can't even post them they're so ugly) we were beginning to worry about Quentin Tarantino's Manson-era Hollywood tale starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt (as a famous actor and his stunt double) and Margot Robbie as Roman Polanski's late wife Sharon Tate.But the teaser has restored hope...
