    Brilliantly cast, beautifully disorienting camerawork, an audacious conceit and some truly nightmarish moments of body horror. The best (and most terrifying) performance is certainly Rufus Sewell but everyone is good here. If this had been some European art horror from the 70s (even with that ridiculous epilogue) it would be hailed as a cult classic. Not elevated horror at all, and all the better for it.

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    Second viewing and so much better. I really loved it. The only one I've really loved since Jackie Brown. Couldn't take my eyes off Brad Pitt and how QT shoots him. His silences are just as fascinating as Margot Robbie's, and that performance is so complex and all about what's not said. It's almost as if QT is losing his love of dialogue. The characters who compel are the ones who rarely speak. Most of his characters open their mouths…

    No, on second thoughts let us not go to Midsommer. It is a silly place.
