I really enjoyed it, but man it's problematic. Too long and self indulgent yes, though oddly that's endearing. DiCaprio and Pitt are so damn endearing it's no chore to watch them tootle around LA. Doesn't really have a plot and whereas in most films the idea is to have characters change and grow this is kinda the reverse, rather than move on from his early success the film ends with Dalton (potentially) reclaiming that kudos. The main things that drag it down for me are: Spoiler: spoilers [*]Bruce Lee, man whatever Quentin wanted to do with that scene doesn't matter, he made the one non white character in the film (and a real person) look like an arrogant arsehole. [*]Changing history (though actually this didn't bother me as much as I thought it would, but still feeds into the self indulgent fan fiction element.) [*]The portrayal of women. Robbie is great, but Tate is little more than a cipher. Every other woman is either a psychopath, or a nagging wife straight out of central casting. The only exception is the precocious child actress, but even she is only there to flatter Dalton's ego. The violence bothered me too, I mean it's highly graphic when meted out to the female Manson members, yet Tex's demise seems far more oblique. I know this is QT's signature, just wish it'd been a little more equal. [*]Cliff's history. I'm sorry but I don't get why Tarantino did this. The crux of the film seems to be: middle aged white man who had his Hollywood career derailed due to allegations of violence against women saves the day by, er, committing actions of violence against women?? Given #metoo, and coming from a director who was one of many to turn a blind eye to Weinstein that seems tone deaf--the fact that Cliff's wife was played by Rebecca Gayheart (an actor whose career was derailed after a vehicular manslaughter charge) really does make it seem like QT is trolling! Sorry this makes it seem like I didn't like the film, and that's the furthest from the truth because I really enjoyed it, but due to the above it frustrated me way more than it might have done otherwise.
