10. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood – One Year On

Play episode

Welcome to the latest episode of the MOTION PICTURES podcast.

Your regular hosts, Carl Sweeney & Tony Black, are back to discuss one of the biggest critical success stories of 2019 – ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD.

A year on from the release of Quentin Tarantino’s laconic epic, portraying the sunset of the 1960’s through the life and times of fictional and non-fictional Hollywood residents, we re-examine the place of Tarantino’s much-loved hit.

How does it fare after a year of huge social and cultural change following the Covid-19 pandemic? Are the various controversies in the film, covering racism and sexism amongst others, still valid? And does the film capture the sense of change in 2019 in the manner it portrays such change in 1969?
