Wow! 500 million films watched by our community!
Simple, graceful, honest. Everyone interested in going into the film industry should see this. Couldn’t stop thinking of when I interviewed at a talent agency that shall not be named and, as I waited to meet with their HR rep, I saw all of the assistants staring at the floor. Not a single person under the age of 25 made eye contact with anyone in the office. They might’ve all been entranced by the carpeting, but my guess is that…
It's obviously hard to see outside one's own subjectivity and the relationships that one already has, the knowledge they already know.

Another lazy, oversimplified, and unnecessarily long & violent film from Harvey Weinstein’s best friend. Tarantino casting a sexual assailant in this just got totally brushed under the rug and anyone who paid to see this is telling the industry that’s totally fine!
It's not even just that it's politically yikes, but Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood wastes oh so much extraordinary talent on this poorly paced, predictable, self-aggrandizing story. Thank God for white men in film and flamethrowers. If only they were around, Sharon Tate would still be alive.
