2019 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 9 – Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

2019 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 9 – Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Film geek personified, Quentin Tarantino’s sixth trip to Cannes and his fourth competition film (comes a decade after showing with Inglourious Basterds). He won the Palme d’Or for Pulp Fiction in 1995 and here it explores a Los Angeles and film history with a skewed lens. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is his ninth feature.

Landing in Cannes with guns blazing, this Matryoshka doll/revenge is a dish served flaming-thrower hot in revisionist and fun faux film history made several of our critics gleeful. It enters the grid currently sitting in third place.
