Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood's golden age.
The casting of Kurt Russell and Zoe Bell as the man and wife stunt coordinators on The Green Hornet is a double inside joke to Tarantino's films. Russell previously played "Stuntman Mike" in Death Proof, in which Bell, a real-life stunt performer, also appeared playing herself. Zoe Bell served as Uma Thurman's stunt double in the Kill Bill series. See more »
Incorrectly regarded as Goof: The item on LSD-dipped cigarettes not working to give a high. The LSD-dipped cigarettes were sold on the street (in broad daylight) by hippies looking to make a buck (or in this case, 50 cents). They could care less whether they actually worked. The cigarettes could have been dipped in anything; saying it was LSD as a new way to get high was a sales trick. They just wanted the money.
Whilst it is true that a cigarette dipped in LSD would not do anything, the cigarette does seem to get Cliff stoned. It could however have been dipped in PCP or other substances which could be inhaled when smoked, and the hippy girl was just calling it LSD because that was the fashionable drug at that time.

The version of the film that screened at The Cannes Film Festival was 159 minutes, two minutes shorter than the version released in theaters in the US. Tarantino reportedly added in more scenes of Sharon Tate, including extending the scene where she picks up a hitchhiker. See more »
I just saw this movie this evening and am still thinking about it. I read other reviews, and believe I see a pattern as to why some didn't like it, and I think it's just lack of appreciation of the time and the storytelling. It was an homage. I remember tv of that era: weekly westerns and crime dramas like Gunsmoke or Perry Mason. Shows that had guest stars who were usually familiar actors from movies or older shows. It was a love story about friendship and honor. What others said was too much jumping around wasn't really paying attention. It clearly stated the dates of what was happening. It was highlighting moments in each character's lives to convey their emotions in addition to tying up the end. And I believe it was a fairytale, hence the title "Once Upon A Time...".
