Rick Dalton has reached his peak, and it’s all downhill from here. Nobody cares that he was a part of a #1 serialized western. That’s old news. Now he’s just an extra, a star that’s bounced around shows to bring in viewers and grow the ego of new, younger stars. He knows it’s not long until he’s nothing but an old memory in the minds of the world, and that terrifies him.
Tune in Wednesday nights for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine!
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is Rated R for language throughout, some strong graphic violence, drug use, and sexual references.
It features Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, and Margaret Qualley.
Directed by Quentin Tarantino.
Melvin Benson is the creator, editor, and lead host of Cinematic Doctrine. He’s written fiction and nonfiction for over a decade with short stories featured on the Creepypasta Wiki and Wattpad. His novelette Ethereal Temptation, a teen drama with a tinge of magical-realism, can be read for free here. His hope is to see King Jesus glorified as far as the east is from the west!
