Finally caught a showing of this. Thoughts: My first reaction is it’s a brilliantly made movie that didn’t leave me thinking anything deeper than, “Man, that was a brilliantly made movie!” Probably won’t be my favorite of the year, but I enjoyed the heck out of it. All the performances were great but Leo’s might be the best I’ve seen all year which I hadn’t expected I loved that this was more or less a montage of a bunch of potentially iconic movie scenes. Heck, the Spahn Ranch scene, Rick Dalton’s breakdown, and Sharon Tate watching her own movie were all movie magic and they basically happened alongside each other. The end scene was insane. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard at something so excessively violent. I will say, I saw the historical twist coming from a ways away but it still surprised me and was so brilliantly done. The last 20 minutes elevated the entire film which I already enjoyed a lot. I also loved how each character was shot. It felt like even smaller characters that had a couple minutes of screen time were shot in such a way that they were the star while they were on screen. I’m not familiar enough with Tarantino to know if this is his thing, but I loved the respect this film had for all the actors. Speaking of, who WAS that amazing little girl??? I guarantee in twenty years we’ll all look back and be like, “Oh man, look how small and cute Julia Butters was.” Instant star. Apparently I loved this movie more than I thought cause I have a lot to say about it. Ha.
