Crowning of Quentin Tarantino's career, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood is first and foremost a tribute to the forgotten of the Hollywood dream machine. Stuntmen and actors from 1960s television series take center stage, while the big stars of the era, director Roman Polanski and actor Steve McQueen, are just passing by. Quentin Tarantino relegates his taste for violence to the background to confront as directly as possible the pangs of acute nostalgia inspired in him by the culture of this very particular period, with the Vietnam War, the hippies and their guru Charles Manson, in addition to an often chaotic frantic quest for freedom.
Far from simple societal painting, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood , which has since been the subject of the publication of a novel by its director, invites the combined influences of the theater of the absurd, pop culture and surrealism to offer a unique experience of augmented reality.
