Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (in 4K) (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood)
USA, 2019 | Length: 160min | FSK: 16 | Director: Quentin Tarantino Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, Al Pacino

With this highly anticipated, wildly enjoyable black comedy, legendary cult filmmaker Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds) again delivers exquisite movie craft in his ninth cinematic epic, featuring A-list stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio along with a massive ensemble cast. Set in Los Angeles in 1969, the film focuses on Rick (DiCaprio), a former western TV star, and his longtime stunt double Cliff (Pitt), who are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don't recognize anymore. With a horrific murder as a backdrop to the main story, the movie is thrillingly unrestrained with multiple storylines, yet solidly crafted as a spectacularly detailed nostalgic splatter collage of a film, featuring all the Tarantino hallmarks - jet-black humor, fine-tuned dialogue, constant movie references, relentless violence, and jukebox soundtrack. A retro tour de force inhabiting a fully realised world of popular culture, the film is entirely outrageous, disorientating, irresponsible, and also brilliant.
