What's with the "need to be consulted" that keeps popping up in the news? First Roman Polanski's wife's tweet -- which was ludicrous and probably got too much media attention for the clicks -- and now Bruce Lee's daughter. If you were a famous person who was part of the history of Hollywood (the key being a part of history), you or your relatives shouldn't really need to be consulted about being fictionalized or represented in a work of art.

Tarantino DID consult Sharon Tate's sister and got her blessing, but that makes sense because of the sensitivity surrounding Tate's story. And anyway, I've heard Sharon Tate is represented in a positive light here, and Margot Robbie said recently that her role is a celebration of Tate's life. So what's with controversy arising over representing or exploring such a story? It's a part of culture and it shaped the American past. I also don't buy the whole assumption of "sensationalizing/using a touchy subject for monetary or story profit." Tarantino could make a completely different film with Pitt, DeCaprio, Robbie, Pacino, Perry, etc., and it would likely do well in the box office.

I guess I'll see how Tarantino handles the material when the film comes out.

Tolstoy faced the same issues with Napoleon's family.

Now that's a poster.

Though there's a bit of inconsistency in the text:                Once Upon a Time In... Hollywood

                                                                                                       Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood

"Do you laugh at jealousy?"

"No, I don't even laugh at seasickness! I happen to regard jealousy as the seasickness of passion."

Oh God, this all has me worried. I feel like my worst fears are going to be realized...

Fiction can be more truthful than fact.

Here'z hoping the third act doesn't shatter your brain, eward ~  :idea:

Polite correction: itís where Sharon, Jay, Abigail, and Voytek dined about 4 hours before the murders.

Gah, thanks! I figured you'd be one of the few to have known the details. Noticed once the interview went on but forgot to edit. Fix'd and, also, fuck the Helter Skelter propagation.

You should post media of note that'll complement the next month of anticipation with facts or theory ~
