A fairytale about Hollywood would be the most apt summary about Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and I could probably leave it just there for this film review. But that would exclude describing the stylish cinematography …
A question posed to me on the Friday night before watching Animals, after I mentioned that the premise of the film is about female relationships, was as to whom the title refers in that instance. Were the animals, in this film, a reference to humans instead or to the foxes that appear in a few scenes?
As an avid film watcher and a keen traveller, the prospect of being able to combine these two passions of mine for August’s travel link up with film locations (organised by Silverspoon London and a few others) was too difficult to resist!
Whether this was a conscious decision or a successful co-incidence but having the release of the 4K restoration of the timeless classic Don’t Look Now on the same release date as Ari Aster’s Midsommar was cinema magic at its best! Watching the two films back to back, the inevitable comparisons could be drawn easily and even from the similarity of the weather based opening scenes of the two films, the influence of Don’t Look Now on Midsommar, as a predecessor, is obvious.
