Movie Info

Actor Rick Dalton gained fame and fortune by starring in a 1950s television Western, but is now struggling to find meaningful work in a Hollywood that he doesn't recognize anymore. He spends most of his time drinking and palling around with Cliff Booth, his easygoing best friend and longtime stunt double. Rick also happens to live next door to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate -- the filmmaker and budding actress whose futures will forever be altered by members of the Manson Family.

Audience Reviews for Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

  • Apr 17, 2020
    From writer/director Quentin Tarantino comes the period drama Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood. A "what if" historical fiction like Inglourious Basterds, the film looks at the 1969 Manson Family Murders supposing that an aging action star and his stuntman had been living next door to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate. Featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Kurt Russell, and Dakota Fanning, the film has an impressive cast; though most of the roles (apart from DiCaprio and Pitt) are little more than extended cameos. And the pacing is incredible slow, fetishizing old Hollywood as Tarantino is want to do. Still, his penchant for witty, engaging dialog is in full effect. While it meanders about too long and its blurring of fantasy and reality feels like a cheat, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood is entertaining and fun (to a point).

    "What if Charlie Manson's cult attack on swanky entertainment persons of L.A. were made instead against, umm, more of a down home type guy?" seems to be the essential question of this look at California culture in the late 60's, inundated as it was with incessant media aimed at pleasure and mayhem. In the meantime we lackadaisically are lead to follow a faded actor's attempt to resuscitate his career while in that environment, as well as that of his stuntman best friend. This adventure is interesting while not essential to the story, which nonetheless is (ala typical Tarantino) topped with a violent climax. Worth watching again? You bet. Great realisation? Incredible.

    This film could have been so much shorter and just as good. Huge chunks, particularly with DiCaprio, ended up being a waste of time in the grand scheme of the film. Margot Robbie was completely underused, but Pitt's character was well written and acted. The final sequence of the film is so great it almost justifies everything leading up to it, but I would not want to watch this film again based on the runtime and fluff alone.
