Terrific film; I can't imagine any other movie topping it for best of the year. What "Stuck in the Middle with You" was for Reservoir Dogs, Vanilla Fudge's "You Keep Me Hangin' On" is for this film.

I heard some tracked-in Herrmann - and note in the tracklist Jarre's theme for Judge Roy Bean serving as end title music!

I'm really looking forward to seeing this, my only visit to a cinema this year. An interesting end title choice, & it's from 1972, but I suppose it's only the pop stuff that has to be 1969 or earlier. I'm staying away from spoilers, I understand that it takes its own sweet time to tell the story, but is full of great scenes, & all that's fine with me.

This film should give Maurice Jarre's career a real shot in the arm.
It's been years since he last scored a film in Hollywood, but I imagine his phone is ringing off the hook with movie producers now.

Erm, you do know he's been dead for 10 years? Or is there a joke here I'm missing?

Whoever wrote this--though it could have been me--really nailed what Quentin is all about in terms of his song selections and his whole take on, well, everything:

"It was really Generation X--of which Tarantino is practically patient zero when you're talking about filmmakers--who were most hit by the idea that every song used in a movie has to be a unique discovery, every thing you like has to be unique and different. The culture of Baby Boomers was about shared experience. Everybody watched the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, everybody cruised around in cars trying to pick each other up, everybody listened to Motown."

"Gen-X was much more about digging up the gems that had been forgotten and neglected, and about setting yourself apart and being individualistic, vs. trying to fit in."

The Bernard Herrmann music that is tracked into the fictional Rick Dalton film "The 14 Fists of McCluskey" is "The Killing" from the rejected "Torn Curtain" score.

There were other film and/or tv music cues sprinkled throughout, but I couldn't identify them. They may have been vintage library cues.

I wasn't surprised to hear the Maurice Jarre cue, as the book that accompanies Universal France's Maurice Jarre set has a quote from Jarre saying that Quentin Tarantino once approached him to score a film, but he declined. Jarre didn't say which film and to my knowledge Tarantino has never been asked about this, but my best guess is that it was for "Kill Bill."

Tarantino doesn't.give a shit if a a song is " chronologically correct"!


..and rightfully so!

Absolutely. That's what I like about this movie - much of it is a "day in the life" of the characters played by DiCaprio, Pitt, and Robbie. But it's all enthralling; despite the easy-going pace of much of it, OUATIH is still one of the quickest 2hr45m movies I've ever experienced. Maybe the only indulgent bits are the scenes showing the filming of DiCaprio's guest spot on "Lancer." It's hard to get involved with the plot of this TV episode when we're already gripped by the OUATIH storyline - i.e. how will the Manson Family murders play out now that DiCaprio and Pitt's characters are in the mix? However, I think in reviewings I'll be able to relax and enjoy the Lancer stuff on its own merits.

A Hidden Life opens in December. I don't know, it's going to have to be as good or better than "The Tree of Life" to top "...in Hollywood."

Ah, thank you. I was pretty sure it was from Torn Curtain but didn't have time last night to make certain.

Nice to see the late great Italian composer Alessandro Alessandroni getting a track on the new album.

This movie could single-handedly make even the dreaded Baby Boomers question their 1960s acid-flashback memories and make even those go sour.

Still, as an "on the spectrum" obsessive of that era's film, tv, and music, I found much to appreciate, but that stuff belongs on a bonus feature segment, not something that should take up as much of this movie's running time as it does.

Awful film, though with game, likable performances from DiCaprio and Pitt.

Laughably and comically bad finale; just embarrassing.

To each their own, I guess. wink

I loved the catchy music, the pop culture circa the late-60s/early 70s, the lived-in feel and pace, QT's little indulgences, and the cathartic finale which cleverly calls back to things earlier in the movie.

I agree with you though regarding DiCaprio and Pitt. I especially liked the scene where they were hanging out together with pizza and beer watching "The F.B.I." and snarking about DiCaprio's guest spot appearance.

It pains me to be so harsh! Especially any film which name drops my beloved "Bonanza" and actually shows the opening credits of "Mannix." I adore the pop culture of this era as much as you do, Mark.

Yes, it's a love letter to the past. Probably QT's earliest childhood memories, but it's a sloppily-written love letter that never should have been "mailed."

So sweet that the unused murder music from "Torn Curtain" gets this featured Big Screen go!
