Movies In Focus is old enough to remember how Quentin Tarantino totally changed the face of cinema with his gutsy style of writing and directing in the 1990s. It was great to be around when Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown exploded onto the big screen and VHS. Each new Tarantino film was a vital must-see.
QT might have lost a little bit of that magic touch – but there’s still something special about catching his latest effort. The tone (and plot) of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is unknown at this point, but I get the feeling that it won’t be a comedic as the way it’s being pitched in this trailer. Leonard DiCaprio and Brad Pitt look like they make a hell of a double act here – and that’s got my attention.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will likely debut at the Cannes Film Festival and then hit US screens on 26 July 2019
