Review: Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time in Hollywood pure unbridled joy

Quentin Tarantino's 9th film has arrived in cinemas.

Tarantino invites us all to worship at his altar of movies as his long-awaited epic Once Upon A Time In Hollywood finally hits our cinemas in all its two hours 41 minutes of glory, and this is not an invitation you should decline.

Leonardo DiCaprio is fading Hollywood action man Rick Dalton. Brad Pitt his loyal friend and stuntman Cliff Booth. Orbiting them is Margot Robbie's Sharon Tate. As typically, Tarantino delivers folklore with fact through his own lusciously inimitable lense.

Events fact and fiction play out in 70's Hollywood, soaked in sunlight and laced with a pending doom and as always to the tune of a Tarantino jukebox and delivered by perfectly cast players in their prime reminding us all why they're movie stars.

That's all really. What more do you need?  Just book your ticket already.

I expected to love this Tarantino, I just didn't expect to fall in love with Tarantino for making it. 

His love letter to his love of cinema will be on my big screen re-watch list for the next few weeks and I cannot wait to welcome it into my own library. 

For me, this was just joy, pure unbridled joy. 

Five stars.
