    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    I saw the 9:00 screening of this, which means I got home past midnight. So, a review (or rambling nothingness) will come later. But, I wanted everyone to know that I really liked it.

    I never updated this. LOL But, these were some tweets I did right after getting home on that beautiful July evening:

    Well, that was fun. I had put off watching this because of my strong aversion to all things NASCAR *not* called Talladega Nights. But, something drew me to it the other night. It was about 3am & I defaulted to a smart, reliable filmmaker to keep me alert & invested. Soderbergh didn't let me down. But, a lot of that is because of the quality of the cast--all of whom were deliciously dipped in a vat of grease and Kentucky-fried af. Southerners…
