There seems little doubt that every detail of the tableau has been selected to give [Tarantino] pleasure, and we are being permitted to witness a private ritual of self-gratification, on more than one level.
August 8, 2019
The plot is a tapestry template that drops in characters like shining beads and watches the story weave slowly around them.
August 5, 2019
A bittersweet, complex, conversation-starting look back at the film business at the close of a tumultuous decade, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also works as a strong argument for why it's too soon for Tarantino to pack it in.

Don't mistake me: This movie is good. It all depends on how hard you're willing to work to justify its pleasures.
July 30, 2019
It feels like Tarantino is so wrapped up in indulging in his own filmmaking style that he loses sight of what made his best movies work.
July 30, 2019
It's dispiriting to suspect that part of why Tarantino wanted to stage a Manson-adjacent story was because the accoutrements-the period cars and costumes and neon signs, the glowering barefoot hippie girls, the acid-laced cigarettes-were just so cool.
August 23, 2019
Quentin Tarantino's inability to separate fiction and reality climaxes in Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood.
August 23, 2019
The idea they will deliver after two hours of development is so great and so romantic that it turns out inescapable. [Full Review in Spanish]

Tarantino has made the most Gen X movie ever. It's all about being surrounded by sexy, scowling millennials who hate your guts and the moral of the story is that baby boomers ruined everything.
August 23, 2019
The movie features many subjects, such as nostalgia, the revision of cinema, and the end of an era. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 23, 2019
This is probably Tarantino's most personal film yet -- a loving homage to Hollywood itself, home of the art form that he's worshipped since childhood, and that informed his career.
August 23, 2019
For me, this was just joy, pure unbridled joy.
August 22, 2019
Let Once Upon a Time in Hollywood be a reminder that Hollywood is still a playground for white men and their fantasies. The rest of us can only get in where we fit in or keep on fighting that good fight.
August 22, 2019
Without a doubt one of the best Tarantino films. [Full review in Spanish]
August 22, 2019
Once Upon a Time... functions as a memento mori, not just to Tate, but to movies themselves. But that doesn't erase or excuse its more problematic aspects.
August 22, 2019
The well-known narrative and technical skill of Tarantino is made tender in his affection for his characters that deep down are his peers, and with so much strength, they even feel capable of rewriting history. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 21, 2019
A metaphorical transference of Tarantino himself to his inspirations of yesteryear.
August 20, 2019
It may meander a bit, it's got enough brilliant moments for it to satisfy (and exhaust) most viewers. [Full review in Spanish]
August 20, 2019
Brilliantly acted, indulgent, predictable, and somehow still utterly convinced that being anti-progress and anti-counter-cultures makes you a rebel, not the status quo.
August 20, 2019
[Beats] to the obsessive pop-culture pulse of Quentin Tarantino like no film of his ever has.
