Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood

Favorite line?  Margot Robbie saying

I’m in the movie.  I’m Sharon Tate.

Second place, the little girl actor saying “Just give me the idea of the story.”

Does any director have more fun with time shifts than Tarantino?  The whole part where Brad Pitt has a fight with Bruce Lee occurs in Brad Pitt’s memory while he’s fixing Leo’s TV antenna (right?).

How about when Rick Dalton is pleading on behalf of his friend?

Hey, you could do anything you want to him. Throw him off a building, alright? Light him on fire. Hit him with a Lincoln, right? Get creative. Do whatever you want, he’s just happy for the opportunity.

Filmic recursion, movies within movies.  Fun!  Movies about movies: Boogie Nights, Singin’ In The Rain, even Citizen Kane starts with a movie within a movie.
