once upon a time in hollywood theory

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood trailer is here, and it’s a blast. The latest film from Quentin Tarantino is a star-studded affair, and based on this trailer, it’s going to lean heavily into comedy. That may seem like an odd choice, since the film features both Charles Manson and Sharon Tate, one of the victims of the Manson Family.

The Hateful Eight director has earned some flack for making a film involving the shocking murders of Sharon Tate at the hands of Charles Manson’s followers, but in Tarantino’s own words, the film is “not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.”
