…to process Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, but I’ll whip something up soon. The bulk of it set in February 1969, and the half-hour finale on a single day — 8.8.69. The overall effect of the first two hours is “yes and no…chuckles and verve and dessert-like allure and half-century-old atmosphere…what?… 1969 aromas and attitudes, late ’60s genre and exploitation flicks…digressions, digressions…where is this going?…wait, great confrontational scene at the Spahn Movie Ranch between Brad “Cliff Booth” Pitt and the mostly female Manson family!”

And then comes the final half hour, which I’m not going to discuss per Q.T.’s request. But it’s good. Satisfying, I mean. With an exclamation point! I laughed, I cheered, I smiled. Hell, I almost I wolf-howled.
