Trivia

Award-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson has said that one of the most gratifying experiences for him on the shoot was filming Al Pacino for the very first time. He'd seen all Pacino's films, but having the rare opportunity to shoot him with Brad and Leonardo in the same space was a milestone in his career. See more »

Goofs

The first time we see, and hear, Cliff Booth driving off from Rick Dalton's home, in Cliff's own car, a vintage VW Karmann Ghia, he drives off with the car's engine in high gear. The sound we hear however seems not to be that of a the typical air-cooled engine VW motor, but more of that of a sports care with a conventional engine. See more »

Quotes

Cliff Booth: All right. What's the matter, partner?
Rick Dalton: It's official, old buddy. I'm a has-been.

Tarantino just created a new genre of film
21 July 2019 | by DanielNButlerSee all my reviews

I don't typically leave IMDb reviews but this film deserves so much praise for its risky screenplay in such a dark true crime setting.

For 2 hrs, 41 minutes, I was taken 50 years back, experiencing Hollywood's film industry as a comedic drama filled with desire, tension and everyday life.

I liked Brad's character the most, but Leo easily matched with his own performance. A definite see-it-in-theatres watch. Bring your sense of humor though. There are lines of dialogue and laugh out loud bits that completely satisfy your curious mind. Expect everything you would from Tarantino, but also what you wouldn't.

I gave it a perfect 10 because I forgot I was watching a nearly 3 hour film, even though it still wasn't long enough for me. I would like to see a director's cut up to an hour longer as I think this is a unique case that extra footage would only help such an already powerful story.

I had the privilege to watch an early 70mm screening of this film at the cinerama dome with the director, Tarantino, in the audience. It was a surreal experience I'll never forget.
