Quentin Tarantino's ninth film, "Hollywood Before," was released. This is his old love letter to Hollywood, at the same time, it is also dedicated to all the dreamers who have a dream, an old fairy tale.

In 1960s Hollywood, Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) was an over-the-top star. He has been a handsome protagonist in numerous films, making action films, playing american officers who abused the Nazis, western sharpshooters, but now only by playing vulgar villains to survive. He's on the set with stand-in actor Cliff Baz (Brad Pitt). Rick's neighbor is director Roman Polanski and his new star wife Sharonty. Everything seemed to be all right, until that day, a group of strange hippies with knives broke into the mountain village.

Lonely Fairy Tales in the Boy's World: My (Feminine Male) vs. Stand-alone (Masculinity Male)

In 1969, a group of young hippies under Charlie Manson broke into the home of Polanski and brutally killed four people, including actress Sharonty, who was eight months pregnant, in a historic violence. Remake the cruel blood case, what about Quentin to deal with this story? He added two fictional characters to rewrite history. Rick Dalton and Cliff Baz, the brothers, are sharp contrasts. Rick is a soft-spoken man, alcoholic, crying, confused about the future, often because of poor self-blame, and full of masculinity, allegedly committed murder in the stand-in of Cliff (masculinity male), in sharp contrast.

"I don't know if I can do it. 」

"Hey, man, at least don't cry in front of Mexicans. Remember, you're that Rick Fuck Dalton. 」

The two of them are similar and opposite, doing unloved work, have no loved ones and family, have no idea who to tell, and are not sure where to go next. Can only drink with brothers to eat pizza, talk about some unspeakable topics, watch the past film, relive the glorious achievements. The lonely world shared by men is fully reflected in the interaction between the two.

I'm an alcoholic star, and no one's going to see my blues.

Aside from the background of the times, the play is dealing with middle-aged anxiety among men.

To help him get back on his way, veteran filmmaker Marvin Schwartz (Al Pacino) has invited him to Italy to shoot a western film, "Take a good rest and start again." At first, Rick declined because he thought that a good actor should not make a half-tone of the righteous western. And in the film, he was frightened by the professional attitude of the 8-year-old girl actor.

That day, in order to play bad, he was in the shed to smash things, crying while blaming himself. "You're a useless person. You look at yourself. I only drink all day, and I drank eight glasses of whiskey the day before the audition? Did you make a mistake? 」

This sense of insecurity before and after, let him indulge in alcohol, re-watching his starring in the old film. He deeply understood that he was a living bastard, but there was no way to face his present self. This fear of being left behind by the "I", in a way, may also be Quentin himself.

Rick's experience is also a microcosm of the helplessness of many men. As a man, once brilliant self, tired of the old age of the previous generation, but the next generation of "diversity" and close lying after. He does not know whether he should embrace this new pluralistic future, or stick to himself until he is eliminated by society.

As a man, tears can save yourself.

After his drunkenness got out of control, Rick was still holding up and trying to finish the movie. He was finally praised by the 8-year-old girl: "This is the best act I've ever seen in my life." He couldn't help crying again (it was the third cry in the play). He was happy for himself and cried and said, "Rick Dalton, you're so bad." 」

The online review praised Leonardo's acting skills, but less about his tears. His first cry was feared, he was afraid he was going to get over his breath, and he choked up against Cliff outside the bar parking lot. The second cry, out of anger, he cursed in the shed many times forgotten his own, why can not work harder. The third cry is a kind of recognition. He knew he had worked hard and finally got the job done. (Same show: From boy to uncle!) You'll fall in love with Leonardo's eleven movie classics again)

Unlike many hard-man movies, Quentin's lens is very honest. He has a fragile side, but he is strong because of it. As a man, tears can save yourself. Sometimes, the problem itself is not solved, but cry, when the emotions have an outlet, you will know for yourself, and have the courage to continue to solve the problem.

You have to believe that your tears will be accepted by the world.

If you could change history, what would you do?

Hard men just can't cry for little things, female stars should be beautiful vases, hippie symbolpeace of peace and anti-violence, in the sixties, in our imagination, everything seems to be just right, no accident. (Same-play:Handsome Lady has a kind of comfortable sexiness, called Margrobi)

And if history can be changed, what will Quentin do? In the film, he flips stereotypes, rewrites historical facts, and gives us different answers.

Perhaps Quentin is still making an adaptation with his ripples. The late 1960s were also the beginning of the television era. Hollywood-led film industry, screen superstars symbolized by the noble significance, will usher in the end of the era. (Just as in 2019, the cross-border streaming platform is constantly challenging TV dramas from production to broadcast.) )
