Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
film brings to you stories that crash in a cultural dissonance and a thoroughly
choreographed ending making outwardly off the cuff scenes featuring Steve

something is like a love letter to a very particular period in Hollywood, most
of 1969 and until August 9, and to some extent, a revisionist narration of the
Manson’s family’s notorious Tate-LaBianca killings of the particular night. The
film’s happy conclusion left some people annoyed or perplexed, while many have
appreciated this film as well. The screen chemistry between Brad Pitt and
Leonardo Dicaprio did delight the audience. You can check it on Prime Video.
