In this interview conducted for Flicks.co.nz, I chat to the writer/director and stars of the most talked-about film of 2019.

For hardcore cinephiles, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood isn’t just the most anticipated film of the year, it’s a veritable wet dream.

Because it’s not just the latest work from Quentin Tarantino, the world’s most successful cinephile—this is a movie about show business, and it’s set in an artfully recreated and beautifully showcased 1969 Hollywood.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Rick Dalton, the former star of a TV Western finding himself decreasingly relevant in a changing Hollywood. Brad Pitt plays Cliff Booth, Dalton’s stunt-double, handyman, and best friend.
