Podcast: Quentin Tarantino on Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood + Transit
Quentin Tarantino's ninth feature is a kaleidoscopic tale of Hollywood backlots, rising starlets and fading stars, hippies and squares, the great and good of tinsel town, the most definitely bad of the golden state, and the ugliness of them rubbing against one another. Our guides through this culture clash are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his affable stunt double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), who stumble upon something far more sinister than a new kind of Hollywood star.
When fleeing Paris after the German invasion, Georg (Franz Rogowski) escapes to Marseille, assuming the identity of a dead author whose papers he possesses. With nowhere to turn, he is confined to the corridors of a small hotel, the consulates, cafés and bars that line the harbour. Everything changes when Georg falls in love with the mysterious Marie (Paula Beer) who is desperate to find her missing husband.
Discussing the films this week are Jake Cunningham, Kelly Powell, Hannah Woodhead and Sam Howlett.
