Naturally, "cultural nostalgia", as Richard Brody points out in the New Yorker, is again the driving force behind ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD. Where INGLORIOUS BASTERDS went back to Nazi Germany and DJANGO UNCHAINED to an America driven by slavery, in his latest film Tarantino looks back on Hollywood at the end of the colourful sixties. A power struggle was going on: the old-fashioned studio giants had to hand over the keys of the kingdom to the independent hippies, the freethinkers, the Easy Riders. It’s Tarantino’s exceptional gift to give form and colour to this grotesque spectacle with unforgettable characters.

Moreover, it is his most personal film. Tarantino was born in 1963, and lived with his mother in Los Angeles from 1966. The city in which he went to school, wrote his first scenarios, and gained knowledge at cinemas and video stores; the city, in short, where he merged with film history. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD is for Tarantino what ROMA was for Alfonso Cuarón: a love letter to a lost time in which the directors themselves could be young passing strangers.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD is full of popcultural references. Curious? Check out this overview by Vulture with all films and series Tarantino references in his latest movie!
