After soaking adults in blood, in film upon film, Tarantino turns out to be great with kids. In the later stages, especially, he shepherds us through crazy happenings as though, without the calming guidance of his voice-over, the various bits of story would fly apart.

Tarantino may be searching for the same anxieties, but only in gleams and flickers do they show through the sheen of his movie, and two things alone freaked me out. One was the sudden, insane burst of brutality that is inflicted by men upon women. And the other was the reaction of the people around me in the auditorium to that monstrosity. They laughed and clapped.
No one was surprised.

So it was fascinating to read your review, and now with her feelings in my mind, I geddit. Paradoxically, in , 7 full years before I met my wife, I had John schlesinger midnight cowboy , offering me the keys to Hollywood Dodged a bullet there I think!
You were saying about the carousel?! Margot Robbie seems usually to be the sort of actress of whom critics write, "Robbie is wonderful - shame about everything else in this car crash. Can't somebody match her up with a decent role in a decent film, just for once?
I am always skeptical about Tarantino films. As Mark points out they cannibalize popular culture to the point where you aren't sure if Quentin revers or despises the culture he uses as his raw materials. But I have to tip my hat to Mark's sublime observation that when the counterculture becomes "the culture" when the Hell is left? If an "anti-culture" political movement becomes "the culture" then how do they continue to justify their existence?
I suppose we all wind up in a Tarantino world - Ugh! Thanks - I don't need to watch it. Not that I will ever watch a Tarantino movie again, nor a DiCaprio movie.

I was dragooned into watching the bear movie - Remnant - just kidding and I have to say it was dire. Every time I read "DiCaprio", I am reminded of Malaysian corruption, climate corruption, and the fat pseud flying his eyebrow artiste around the world whilst he is banging young fillies on mega-yachts.
Pitt reminds me of his dreadful ex-Jolie. Jolie reminds me of Jon Voight - he was great in Midnight Cowboy. So there is a win in it. I am hoping that I don't hear or read of Keanu Reeves slagging of guns, Trump, etc - I have just bought John Wick 3 and want to watch it.
The film is a paean to what's now sadly known as toxic masculinity. He might have masculine darkness in his past but Tarantino leaves us to wonder about that, it is left inexplicit, a nice touch. What we see is a beautiful portrait of the type of masculinity that is now excoriated by the cultural Left. The film longs for that type of person to save the day.
It is a wonderful example of conservative values and like all Tarantino films beautifully crafted. I left the cinema sad that real life wasn't like this film - that's a really old fashioned reaction to a modern film that has it's values in the right place. Not yet a member of the Mark Steyn Club?
