Episode 155: Quentin Tarantino On The Music Of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
What better way to start the fourth year of our film music podcast Soundtracking than with one of the undisputed kings of the art, Quentin Tarantino.
His new movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is everything you'd hope for when it comes to the deployment of pop cues, and also features score by the likes of Bernard Herrmann and Maurice Jarre.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_DiCaprio) , Brad Pitt (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brad_Pitt) and Margot Robbie (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margot_Robbie) among many others, Once Upon A Time is set in 1969 Los Angeles (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Angeles) , where an ageing television actor and his stunt double navigate the changing Hollywood film industry. It blends fiction with real events - most notably the murder of Sharon Tate at the hands of the Manson family.
