Quentin Tarantino pays homage to Hollywood cinema of the 1960s and to all of American pop culture in his biggest hit in a decade. Filled with anecdotes and electrifying digressions, this is the story of an actor in westerns who is trying to get back to the top (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his faithful understudy (Brad Pitt has never been better). In the background is an era of protest, the hippie movement, the twilight of the classic Hollywood era and the golden age of television—not to mention Steve McQueen, Bruce Lee, spaghetti westerns, the beautiful Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski following his big success, Rosemary’s Baby. Tarantino’s great love of cinema can be felt on absolutely every millimeter of film. And with every minute of Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood, viewers fall in love even more with the wild vision of the maker of Pulp Fiction. This is also a bloody and unpredictable tale in which Tarantino astonishes no less than in Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.
Born in 1963, Quentin Tarantino is an American director, screenwriter and actor, as well as an occasional producer, and one of the main representatives of film postmodernism. He began his career writing the screenplays for Natural Born Killers and True Romance. He came to prominence as a director with his pastiches of gangster dramas (Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, which took home a Palme d’Or and an Oscar) characterized by their brutality, extensive dialogue and references to mass culture. The next stage of his work includes the drama Jackie Brown, the two-part Kill Bill, the war dramedy Inglourious Basterds and the western Django Unchained. In his films, Tarantino reveals his fascination with cinema by creating collages of different styles and genres.
