A tribute to old-school Hollywood
Please do not listen to folk who claim this "has no plot". It's about two guys trying to make it back in Hollywood in the shadow of the Manson murders. If that's not a plot I don't know what is.

OUATIH requires you to have prior knowledge of the Mansons as it doesn't really go into detail about their motivations. That's great though, as far too many movies assume you're stupid (perhaps rightly if some of the users reviews are to be believed) rather than assume you're smart.

If you have an appreciation for filmmaking and the romance of Hollwood in the '60s, you'll love it.

Nothing Happens For 3 Hours, Beautifully.

This is a fairy tale, a poignant little dream that should have happened according to Tarantino, who weaves his tale of innocence meeting menace with all the skill of a seasoned director who shoots film on film, capturing every tiny detail he has carefully placed in each frame.

There's no doubt that this is divisive with many in the audience thinking it self-indulgent, overly wrought and a departure from his earlier work which was notorious for its gratuitous yet oh so satisfying depictions of ultra-violence. And they may even have a point, since it seems the director threw everything he loves at the screen without any apology or hint of restraint except when it came to a body count.

Yet if you go into this film with altered expectations, and a view to see a gentler and more thoughtful Tarantino tell a bedtime story to the world of cinema that he loves, you may be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

Glorious

Just a fantastic film. Probably now my favourite QT film, it's a poignant, emotional & funny tale of the end of the golden age of Hollywood. A glorious pastiche on celebrity & sensitive re-telling of those horrific murders.

It cannot be faulted.

Rubbish
Verified purchase
Tedious, meandered about with little or no plot - the cast and the director suggested that this should be good but now I know why it was £2.99 on Amazon - it is rubbish. We kept waiting for the Tarantinoseque twist but it just wasn't there. turned it off eventually. How the mighty have fallen. Keep your money for a rerun of Dumbo, you will be more entertained.

A masterpiece

This is a movie that made me travel back in my childhood time like nothing has done before. With so many little details thoroughly researched and something happening everywhere all the time, you constantly drift back in time.
There is a typical QT DNA in the build up, the scenes, the acting, all to the next level. Humour is omnipresent and the pair Pitt/Di Caprio is immense.

Great central performances from LDC and Brad Pitt. These two seasoned actors were brilliantly cast by QT. This is not your usual QT movie. It’s a slow burner ‘tour de force’.

It’s the sort of movie you can watch again and again because there is so much going on you will miss it 1st time.

Down to the production settings which were spectacular from the old classic cars, the street scenes with the movie posters, the cinemas whether static or drive in. The radio stations constantly playing in the background. It was all the little things that made it for me.....

The almost cameo bit parts by the actors in one scene, Michael madsen (long time QT collaborator), Bruce Dern (same), Zoe Ball (same), Kurt russell got a few scenes but did you recognise his voiced doing the commentary. Luke Perry, sadly no longer with us. Big shout out to Timothy Oliphant who was just awesome as LDC sidekick. Also to Al Pacino as LDC Rick Daltons saviour agent who propelled him into Spagetti Westerns via Sergio Leones wannae fictional director Sergio Carbucci.

Then also Margot Robbie’s ‘Sharen Tate’ wonderful method acting and the whole Charles Manson Hippie commune following and the twist that followed in the last 20 mins of the film that wasn’t expected at all and major congrats to QT for getting the final cut permissions to get it included.

Spoiler Alert ‘the scene at the old western venue with Dakota Faninng (hardly recognised her) and Brad Pitt was my favourite scene. You could taste the tension in your mouth. Brilliantly shot....

Finally I had a laugh at the Nazi scene (QT just Hates Nazis and was very reminiscent of Inglorious Basterds). Spoiler Alert !! OMG the idea behind the Great Escape scene WOW !!

That’s it, Cowboys, Nazis, a great score, terrific dialogue, wonderful production sets and actors and oh yeah brad pitts dog.

Can’t wait until your 10th movie QT. You’ve not lost your magic💪

Terrible

2.5 hours of nothing but boredom, 10 mins of classic Tarantino at the end! boring beyond belief. I wouldn't waste your time or money!! I think this has to be the worst film he has made!
Such a shame as I was all geared up and looking forward to this film release.

Very disappointed!!

Nothing much happens

I read some reviews complaining that not a lot happens and that the film is too long but thought, you buy a Tarantino film for the dialogue.

After watching, I have to agree with the bad reviews. It was mildly entertaining, watching Leonardo and Brad going from one film set to another but very forgettable.

Maybe if I had been around in the 60s, I would have got it.
