An ambitious undertaking.....Let's try not to take it too seriously!
31 July 2019 | by dgcampoSee all my reviews

This film is rather un-Tarantino like in few ways. There is little if any race baiting (didn't hear the N word once) and he pretty much saved the violence for the last twenty minutes.

To those detractors who cite the historical inaccuracy, THIS IS FICTION! None of this stuff EVER happened. Once disbelief is suspended, this film turns out to be a very good character study as it pertains to the characters portrayed by Pitt and DeCaprio. They were both excellent. Margot Robbie is more than believable as Sharon Tate, whose tragic story had been transformed into a background story.

As far as Sharon Tate's role here; I grew more impressed with the curve ball QT throws at you at the movie's end. Without a spoiler, he turns the night of August 8 1969 into an entertaining "what if" scenario. It plays out as somewhat over the top, but it was entertaining nevertheless.

QT did a great job recreating the Hollywood of 1969. The radio and TV commercials really augment the period piece. The cars, locales, and venues appear painstakingly constructed. You are IN 1969. Rick Dalton's story could easily been confused with many a "washed up" actor at that time. The canon that was Dalton's career is masterfully done via trailers and movie posters.

Kudos to the dog who played Brandy. She's a Delaware native and did her home state proud.

Get some popcorn, put some Vitalis in your hair, and enjoy this film. It is well done!
