Navel Viewing - the Safe Way to Take Oscars Home
On Friday, it is time for another premiere about the film factory in the west. And it already smells like price rains. If there's anything Hollywood loves, it's ... Hollywood.
It is usually said that films with a true model of strong fate are generating awards at the Oscars. Characters with some type of functional variation are also traditionally regarded as jury enthusiasts. But lately, another gripe seems to be more waterproof for those who really want an Oscar: make a movie about the film industry.
Quentin Tarantino's big comeback Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood takes place in the golden age of the American film industry - 1969 in Los Angeles. Leonardo DiCaprio plays a sacked western actor and Brad Pitt plays the role of his stuntman. Margot Robbie plays Sharon Tate - the actor and photo model, married to director Roman Polanski, who was brutally murdered by followers of Charles Manson. At the murder, she was pregnant. The deed has been inscribed in American criminal history and in the story of Hollywood. Tarantino's film premiered in Cannes and has received good reviews. Most likely, a price rain is to wait as the gala season kicks off. The jury groups love stories that are so close to their own reality that identification and its benefits are obvious.Three films where navel-gazing has paid off:
