Star quality aside, can’t help but have my view of this a little altered going in with full knowledge that the lead is Italian catholic.
And I fuckin love Fred Melamed.
Okay so this was my second try at this and the parts that are about Tate or the Mansons just don't work which is a shame because there are 3/8ths of a solid movie in here! Like the parts I found sincerely enjoyable were the DiCaprio parts and there are just a few solid stretches with none of that. Also QT's tendency towards historical revisionism in the past decade has really begun to wear on me.
