Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood's golden age.
During the scene in which George Spahn is struggling to identify Cliff Booth he mishears his name as John Wilkes Booth. John Wilkes Booth was the man who assassinated president Abraham Lincoln on April 15 1865. The woman who questions Cliff before allowing him to enter, and sitting one room away from this exchange is infamous moonie acolyte Lynette 'Squeaky' Fromme. On September 5 1975 Fromme attempted to unsuccessfully assassinate President Gerald Ford. Interestingly Lincoln was assassinated in Ford's Theatre in Washington DC, and Fromme's attempt on Ford was in Capitol Park after he had entered from Lincoln street in Sacremento California.

For sure, the atmosphere of 1969 is perfectly transcribed with a strong focus on the two fictive fellows, Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth. Thus, Brad Pitt interprets a guy without particular ambition, fulfilled, living from day to day without worrying about tomorrow and endowed with an exceptionally mesmerizing aura; in the audience, women were obviously under his spell. Leonardo DiCaprio impersonates a more complex individual who is no more than the shadow of himself, inexorably sliding towards the abysses of oblivion. They are both awesome! And Margot Robbie? Well, well, well, she sublimely shines. I truly behaved like the Tex Avery's howling wolf in each of her scenes!
If you are a film buff, you will probably enjoy Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019). If you are a fan of Quentin Tarantino as I am, you may be surprised or even frustrated by the contemplative narration and the deliberately slow pace. Actually, with a recipe including 2 major ingredients such as 1) Sharon Tate in August 1969 and 2) Quentin Tarantino, we may say that the cooking is over a sloooooow heat until the long-awaited final denouement, and the prepared dish is undoubtedly lacking of bloody red chili.
