Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood (2019, dir. Quentin Tarantino)

In 1968 LA, a fading action star struggles with his future prospects. A stunning evocation of late 60s Hollywood, packed with ideas, in-jokes, good ideas, and pop-culture geekery. A shaggy dog story that meanders, but which goes into some startling – and just-about justified – places. Recommended.

Django Unchained (2012, dir. Quentin Tarantino)

A slave and a dentist team up to claim bounties and to mount a rescue. Episodic and sprawling, Django Unchained is nevertheless¬†funny, thrilling, horrific, informative and a great-looking quest. Something for everyone, and there’s Franco Nero too.
