As the 9th film in the career of the cult Quentin Tarantino in the role of screenwriter and director, "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" gives the audience a feeling of nostalgia, both in the background of the movie scenes itself, and the style of Tarantino as it has been 4 years since his last work, "The Hateful Eight", was released.
The film is set in 1969, revolving around actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his friend and long-time stuntman, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), who were struggling with a downhill career. Hollywood was undergoing many changes and the "old" generation as these guys was about to be replaced.
Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth were people who were running out of time in Hollywood.
One of the highlights of the movie is Leonardo DiCaprio's amazing acting. Completely different from the evil antagonist Calvin J. Candie in Quentin Tarantino's previous work "Django Unchained", DiCaprio's character this time, Rick Capton was an out-of-date movie star with a pessimistic view of life after his Hollywood experience.
With his talent, DiCaprio gave audience a Rick Dalton with a lot of emotions, with a different way of reacting to the harsh reality of an out-fashion star.
Rick Dalton's fate was both a tragedy of a slow-moving factor when the wave of "New Hollywood" came, and a humorous romance story of a film-loving soul, a person who was always devoted to cinema, always wanted to live forever in the atmosphere of an artistic Hollywood.
"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" proves that Leonardo DiCaprio hadn't overslept with victory after the very first Oscar in his career with "The Revenant" (2015).
Through Rick Dalton, we have a clear, realistic, and somewhat exaggerated look at an actor's work, about challenges and inadequacies when they are framed in some roles during their career, not able to keep up with the change in acting style, the difference of opinions when working with new directors...
The image of an actor who looks bold outside but is actually week inside like Rick Dalton is so conflict that every time the character cries, the audience laughs non-stop. In this new movie, DiCaprio is once again the one who gets all the attention on the screen, when every scene he appears in always delight the audience.
Possessing a very strong cast in both reputation and acting talent, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie... all express excellently the characteristics of the character that they take over.
Cliff Booth of Brad Pitt, an equally interesting character alongside Rick Dalton of DiCaprio.
Other popular faces were picked in even supporting roles, including Damon Herriman as Charles Manson, Emile Hirsch as Jay Sebring, Dakota Fanning as Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, Austin Butler as Tex, Rafal Zawierucha as Roman Polanski, Mike Moh as Bruce Lee, Damian Lewis as Steve McQueen, Luke Perry as Wayne Maunder… They appeared just a few minutes and said a few words to communicate with each other, but their attendance is enough to excite any viewer. In "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", we have nothing to complain about the acting.
Not yet a perfect work, it can be said that "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" is Quentin Tarantino's sincere and unique letter to the audience to share his love for the cinema and Hollywood, at the intersection between the old wave and the new wave in particular. For many people who have shared their love for cinema with Quentin Tarantino for the past few decades, they will surely feel the fairytale - which is not a fairytale in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood".
