Once upon a time in Middlesex, Robs Daniel and Wallis took a good, long look at Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
And what better way to tackle an expansive, rambling tapestry of a movie than by having a rambling, discursive chat of their own (written view available here).
Over 70 minutes the two Robs look at everything from old Hollywood and the rise of the new Hollywood to how Tarantino seems to be making his own statement on women in Hollywood, the troubles of weaving real-life tragedy into a wonderland fantasy, how the film treats real life figures Sharon Tate and Bruce Lee, and so much more.
Including Burt Reynolds’ sad passing before he could appear in the film and the unblinking ferocity of Dakota Fanning.
Rob Daniel also muses on the usefulness of Instagram. Rob is trying to get his head around self-promotion of things without be able to link through to anything substantial. As a great character once said, “C’mon ramblers, let’s get ramblin’…”
Tech notice: Apologies for the sound issue, the Robs were unable to record in their usual room so lots of noise reduction and level-balancing was required. They won’t bore you with the details, but rest assured our intrepid travellers in pod will be in their normal place next time.
