Has its pluses and minuses. Leo and Brad are great

In fact the acting overall is really good. It’s very funny in parts and if you are familiar with the Manson family saga you’ll get a kick out of some of the subtle pieces and try to figure out which one is Sadie and which one is squeaky etc.

It’s unnecessarily long, and what makes it long is pretty unnecessary to the central plot although the extraneous scenes are usually very funny and enjoyable.

Tarantino avoids most violence and bloodshed until the end. The plot twist is kind of clever and funny, but the violence is way way over the top. It’s so over the top it’s hilarious if you can keep your eyes actually on the screen.
My partner is not a Tarantino fan but she wanted to see the movie. She was not aware of the connection with the Manson family until the beginning of the movie, then I think her enjoyment might’ve been spoiled by immediately anticipating how the movie would end, in a bloody climax.

The plot line is kind of interesting, and the movie is beautifully made, but I’m not sure I’d recommend it if not for DiCaprio and Pitts great performances. Pitts in particular is a riot at the end.
