Much hyped, but disappointing. It’s a very LA film, but even more than that, it’s a very Hollywood insider film. A lot of it reminds me of GTA the video game with a lot of driving around and a lot of time spent on the radio stations to establish the time period. This is probably the film’s greatest strength and I think this is one reason it did fairly well during the awards
season – the timing and location of the film coincide with the experiences of a lot of the voters. If you’re 50-60 and living/working in LA/Hollywood then there’s a good chance you’ll like this one. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it’s a pretty narrow film to me.
I really didn’t see the performances as all that amazing. I love Margot Robbie, though. The cast was big and diverse. Had the Tarantino touch in that it was a film lovers movie. Overrated.
