Just an amazing film. 🙂 Quentin Tarantino takes a beautiful, mesmerizing snapshot of Hollywood in its heyday, which it can be now also, if we were to want it to be so!!!
Thank God Tarantino doesn’t give any time to the people who would otherwise insist on the tedious political correctness that we all enjoy confronting on a daily basis. 🙂 This gives him the freedom to teach us humans a lesson in learning how to discern reality, fact from fiction, in a very special way. The behind-the-scenes aspects of this film are so excellently shot and devised. . . . Just seamless. The editors did a wonderful job with this film. It must have been fun going through all of the footage they must have gone through to flood the screen constantly with such vibrant images of ye olde Hollywood.
So, cheers to this movie! I’m enjoying watching it again. I will probably watch it again next week.
And the score was extremely tasteful!

I feel the movie landed punches squarely where they were aimed, deftly and powerfully. It expressed what I have been feeling for some time and obviously what many others have also been feeling, and it did it so beautifully. It was shot wonderfully. (I can’t wait to buy the Blu-ray.) The writing seemed perfect.
Underlining everything it seems is what has come up so often in my recent conversations: the utter lack of empathy on the part of our seemingly voluntarily emotionally stupid society. Everyone is so self-involved that they have abandoned their capacity for attempting to understand others. They’re so stupidly confident/confidently stupid that they don’t deign to lower themselves to having to, you know, relate to other human beings that are not in their immediate gene pool.
One of the important lessons: actions have consequences. 🙂 Even the mighty American Empire can have its big toys go boom. The ultra-rich parasites can only feed off of everyone else for so long before bad things start happening that are out of anyone’s control, in which case everyone loses eventually, believe it or not.

Our concept of “property” is almost ridiculous.
