Well, I gotta say man, none of my passengers tonight had anything even remotely close to say in her defense similar to you here and you might’ve just convinced me of a good enough excuse. Something to think about for sure.
All non-Nolan related film, tv, and streaming discussions.
I understand that feeling to a degree in regards to Tate/Robbie but on the other hand I really admired his restraint. I can’t really speak for people who went in totally unfamiliar with Tate and the Manson murders, I understand the movie won’t have the same impact or really work in that case.
Like I said, bro didn’t get the point of her character since he wasn’t invested in reality of the story and gf felt the same even though I told her about the whole case prior to seeing this. Then there’s my other brother who knew and still disliked the way he did it. All of us loved the finale per se though, the way it was shot and all. Anecdotal but also true for (at least) my group.Allstar wrote: ↑August 15th, 2019, 7:13 pmI understand that feeling to a degree in regards to Tate/Robbie but on the other hand I really admired his restraint.

Restraint... different choice for QT for sure. Evidence building up for at least a bit more admiration from me, even if I wanted to see it differently. After all I ranted about Django and H8 finales extensively. And here it was done with both directorial skill and just the right dosage.
Relax about what...? I'm not worked up. I'm just not really getting his initial viewpoint is all. He gave a pretty in-depth explanation and list about his understanding of certain things, but it seems like he's contradicting some of that with his opinions of what he was hoping for. I don't think he's being disrespectful and I'm certainly not trying to start an argument, I'm just trying to clarify why I don't get what he's getting at.
I just think the “no offense” that always means offense... and the confused face smiley is not needed. He thought Sharon was going to have more agency in the story, for people going in blind thinking that and coming out feeling underwhelmed I can understand to a degree. The movie works better knowing what QT was tying to achieve and that can really only be fully appreciated on reflection and re-watch, not initial reaction. Also, if it doesn’t click with someone, that’s okay too.
