    Good luck to them, I have just seen Quentin Tarantino’s “love letter to 1960s Hollywood” which opened in Ireland yesterday.

    US $100m budget plus a revenue share? It will do well in the cinema because of his previous career momentum, it’s not terrible and it keeps your interest for the best part of its nearly three hours, but it’s not the sort of movie you’d see more than once (unlike pretty much all the previous QT works), overlong, “comedy”, plotless project managed probably using PRINCE. Didn’t even have Michael Parks in a cameo. Needs to buck his ideas up for X.

      Michael Parks died two years ago. Although with CGI and Deepfakes these days I suppose he still could have made a cameo.

        Exactly, indeed the latest QT features such CGI trickery inserting Leonardo di Caprio into “The Great Escape”. Death would not have been an obstacle to the Quentin Tarantino of old.

    From the Festival home page…..
    “celebrating and showcasing fantastic female filmmaking, as well as demonstrating that women make compelling and complex characters and subjects.”
    Oh come on, surely things have moved beyond this.
    Sounds like something from the eighties.
