Cast members like Brad Pitt, Quentin Tarantino and Leonardo DiCaprio praise Tarantino’s obsession with Hollywood in 1969 and the meticulous attention to detail that comes with it. He has a memory of so much from that era, which is a big part of why the movie feels so authentic in its portrayal of the time. And if you need any testament to that, Kurt Russell chimes in with first-hand knowledge of what it was like during that time.
Producers David Heyman and Shannon McIntosh chime in with their praise for the filmmaker, as well as director of photography Robert Richardson, who expertly captured the impeccable sets that brought old school Los Angeles back to life for one last breath before the golden age would start to fade.
