For his next film, Tarantino went big – although arguably, he usually does. His cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt as two aspiring TV stars hoping to succeed in the film industry in 1969 Los Angeles.
The film is set in the context of an America rocked by the Manson Family murders – the killings perpetrated by a cult formed in California and led by Charles Manson. By the end of the 60s, Manson was predicting an apocalyptic war based on racial tensions. Apology of violence and cult of deranged leaders: it is not hard to see how it all makes well for a classic Tarantino.
