They barely seemed interested in each other in 1969.
We saw them on screen together for a total of like two seconds on a jet lagged plane ride.

If itís not his best film, Hollywood is equal to anything Tarantino has ever done. I love this movie.

The latest Video Archives podcast is part 1 of a retrospective on Rickís career. Itís an in-universe discussion; there is no breaking character as to Rick being fictional. Several alternate history movies are described in detail. Tarantino even has archival interviews that he conducted with Rick (but he provides Rickís voice so that part is a bit weird).

I'm pretty tolerant of a lot of Tarantino's indulgences. For example, I loved the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood novelization which featured numerous tangents about Rick's career, Cliff's opinions on cinema (which read more like Tarantino's opinions) and the backstory to the fictional characters on Lancer. But I listened to about 20 minutes of this podcast and had to shut it off because I kept thinking, what is the point of any of this? I guess it's kind of interesting as a creative exercise, but I didn't actually enjoy listening to it.

95% of all dialogue in a Tarantino movie is just Quentin spouting his opinion about something, just in the voice of one of his characters rather than saying it himself. Whether it's Clarence Worley's hero worship of Elvis Presley, the Reservoir Dogs' discussion of Madonna and appreciation of 70s music, or Nazi soldiers pointing out that the plot of King Kong is an allegory for the story of Blacks in America in general.
