'Once Upon A Time In... Hollywood': Tarantino's Fairy Tale Turns Grim

"And even if he did, there wasn't a stuntman in Hollywood fast enough to catch his leg and throw him into a auto", Polly said. Still, besides the ending, one of the aspects that bothered me was the portrayal of Bruce Lee, played by Korean-American actor, Mike Moh.

"It takes place at the time of the hippie revolution, and it takes place at the height of the new Hollywood", Tarantino said of the movie.

She added, "They didn't need to treat him in the way that white Hollywood did when he was alive".

The mockery of Bruce Lee travelled fast to China and angered local fans.


Was Bruce Lee a modest, button-downed role model of humility? "Hollywood" has been viewed more than 300 times with the furious comments pointing an accusatory finger at the film and defending Lee, a China's cultural pride.

Tarantino's ninth film turned out in the USA at the end of the week, and fans have been responding to various scenes in the long awaited motion picture.

There was no formal announcement and zero hype, but when folks when to go check out the cut of the film with 25 minutes added, they were greeted by a TV series instead. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a fading western actor named Rick Dalton and Brad Pitt as his loyal stuntman Cliff Booth. But what makes Tarantino's portrayal of Lee so amusing is that - sorry to say this - it's based in part on the truth.

"Variety spoke to Dan Inosanto, Lee's now 83-year-old protégé, and although Inosanto did not bring up race, the far-left publication still frames the whole piece around the idea of racism (mild spoilers): "...where Lee is shown bragging about his fighting prowess, only to be bested by ageing white stuntman Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt)".


However, to Lee's daughter, that's not enough. In Hollywood Los Angeles premiere. While there are some fantastic parts-Leonardo DiCaprio is truly incredible in this-it's also a messy, meandering film that would be seen as lazy and narcissistic if it were made by anyone else.

"I'd make him a cripple", Lee brags. Lee's daughter also didn't like that her father was portrayed as an instigator by Quentin Tarantino. "It strayed so far from the truth of who he was and of any actual encounter he had.It was bad to watch".

Shannon points out her father was actually the one who was challenged to fights constantly because of his image, and that he tried hard to avoid them.

She said she has vivid memories of him and still feels a close connection.


With some of the biggest names in Hollywood making appearances in the film, it seems unlikely that there were ever issues with professionalism on set.
