, titoli I can forgive since he wasn't in the USA during the 60s so he'd have nothing to judge it by except the obvious, the old cars.

No, sorry. WTF has got the being there with the movie? So this can be appreciated now only by americans over 60 years old? This is nonsense. What I judge the movie on is the usual nowhere going dialogues (see LDC and the girlie), the nowhere going sequences like Bruce Lee being beaten by Pitt (can anything be more stupid?) Or the moronic sequence of Tate having fun watching herself at the movies: I wasn't there and you weren't either,  so what? And you were not at the Spahn ranch just like I was not: so what? The Playboy mansion sequence, with Steve mcQueen (looking like Terence Stamp) beside a Deborah Harry lookalike? There are docs about it. And the sequence of the dog which tries to emulate (awkwardly) the cat sequence in The Long Goodbye? And the goofy line of posters to condensate  the italian career of LDC? You are enthused by that? I'm not.  And I repeat: the revised history sequence makes me puke.

It was great, I get it you didn't get it, sorry you didn't enjoy it. That Deborah Harry statement just illustrates what I'm talking about. You know American culture by a set of images, a certain set of events but not the Zietgiest of the time. That was a Connie Stevens lookalike, Harry wouldn't be around until ten years later. I didn't put any significance on the dog nor was I looking to connect it with any other film.

It can be appreciated even more so by Americans over 60 years old. ;-)

You really think I can't tell Connie Stevens from Deborah Harry?  Or Steve  McQueen from Terence Stamp? That was only to remark the mediocrity of the characterization.  Or you have forgotten that they had to write the names of those characters on the screen to allow the audience to spot them.

the mediocrity of the characterization

That's your subjective opinion and you are entitled to it.

Once Upon A Time in Hollywood earned another $20 million in its second weekend, taking a better-than-hoped 51% drop from its $41 million debut. That’s a terrific 3.5x weekend multiplier from its $5.66 million Friday and gives Sony’s $90 million Quentin Tarantino film a $78.8 million ten-day total. That's still pacing 7% above Inglorious Basterds after ten days, and that 2009 World War II thriller dropped just 49% in weekend two ten years ago in a far more favorable theatrical environment.

Nice.

I really hope it will make money (it seems like it will, but it has to be QT's biggest box office success in order to do so). We need studios to be rewarded for financing these unique films if we don't want to live in a world of franchises.

I have been watching recent QT interviews though, and I’ve noticed a big difference with older interviews: he seems much more relaxed and sincere than he was. Which is a good thing for him as a human being because I guess he’s much happier and at peace with himself now that’s he’s not lying on every possible topic just to prove to us (and thus to himself) that he’s cool as hell, but i’m Not sure it’s a good thing for his work.
It's early married-life syndrome! Ever since conning that Israeli singer to be his wife QT has been living a dream. When life is better than any fiction you can imagine, the fiction is gonna suffer.  O0

He's the kind of guy who feels ripped off when he steals something he doesn't like. Even when he knew beforehand he wouldn't like it. That kind of guy never feels relaxed.

Which is a good thing. I like my Titoli angry and hateful. I usually don't feed him for a couple weeks before letting him watch a movie.

The Panic in Needle Park 7.5/10
Gorgeous to look at, great performances all over the place, terrific atmosphere... and a documentary approach that is both one of the greatest strength of the movie but also shows its limitations. The deep humanity that often transpires from the two main characters was enough to make me forget their huge stupidity from time to time.
Movies like The Wrestler have a couple of stuff to learn from this one.

How would you say it compares with Puzzle of a Downfall Child or Scarecrow? Schatzberg is one of the great 70s directors that people (especially the idiots on this board) never talk about.

You know I'm one of the idiots on this board so I've never seen any other Schatzberg film. I've been wanting to watch this one for a long time because of the screenshots (including the poster) that keep popping up on visual social media (mainly Pinterest but also Instagram from time to time). I do own a copy of Scarecrow though, which I'll try to see before the end of the month.
