    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    Dripping with nostalgia and soaked in pastiche, ONCE UPON A TIME is an incredibly enjoyable, meandering slow-ride through the world of 60’s Hollywood that operates as a tender, charming, hilarious, but heart-felt love letter to the industry and town that Quentin Tarantino took by storm 25 years ago. 

    It is JACKIE BROWN in cadence - mellow and cool. Absent are the two-page monologues or scenes where there are six Tarantinos talking to each other. Gone is the cartoonish explosiveness that…

    What a ride. Never have I watched a movie that shifted and morphed mood/tone/genre so effortlessly.

    ★★★★½

    For years I had been wanting to familiarize myself with Indian Cinema and for years I put it off. Even created a list or two of a few dozen titles I wanted to start with, namely Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), 3 Idiots (2009), and Ray’s Apu Trilogy (1955-59). 

    But then RRR bursts onto the scene and before I knew it, I was transported to this fairy tale land between Delhi and dynamite dreams. What a force of nature! I…
