Charismatic and supremely confident, Sensei has very specific ideas of what it means to be a man. He preaches a take-what-you-want attitude, in which power belongs to the one who can punch the hardest. It’s an ideology reflective of the alpha/beta worldview that a certain type of men still subscribe to. But Casey falls under its sway, submerging himself in this world of hypermasculinity with a fraternity of other male rejects.

Said Mike Hopkins, Sony Pictures Television Chairman, “Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ promises to be a cinematic event. We’re excited to support it and bring these fantastic films from the studio’s historic library to SPT’s network audiences around the world.”

Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The film features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.

“Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” is written and directed by Tarantino, and produced by David Heyman, Shannon McIntosh and Tarantino. Georgia Kacandes, YU Dong and Jeffrey Chan serve as executive producers.The lone woman in this odd environment is Anna (a wonderful, ferocious Imogen Poots), a brown belt who teaches children’s karate class. Considering his beliefs about men, it’s perhaps not surprising to learn that Sensei also has some fairly misogynistic beliefs about what it means to be a woman too. He treats Anna with contempt, seeing her as biologically inferior. And Anna for her part has internalized so much of his teachings that even as she rages at her gendered treatment, she still finds herself craving his validation.
