Starr is currently shooting the last season of the multi-Emmy nominated HBO series Silicon Valley. Starr produced the 2018 independent feature Silver Lake.

Movie ratings can be a crap shoot at times, with projects presenting themselves as experiences that could straddle key thresholds in some of their earliest trailers. On the other hand, when a Quentin Tarantino film is announced, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be an R-rated extravaganza.

The man just doesn’t do “tame” or “safe” fare for the masses, opting to go over the top with violence, profanity, and gore effects whenever he shows up to the table. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is no exception, as it’s finally gotten an official R-rating, and for the following qualifiers:

Language throughout, some strong graphic violence, drug use, and sexual references

We’ll wait a moment for those of you in the audience who are shocked by this information to control yourselves. Quite frankly, there’s probably none of you out there who were that surprised, especially when both trailers for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood basically snuck in as much innuendo, and key usages of the F-bomb as they could in their short, dazzling timeframes.

Above all of that though is the fact that Quentin Tarantino has never made a film that’s not been rated R. His aesthetic is so drenched in blood and profanity that it’d be hard to even get that sort of thing to a PG-13 level without heavy editing. Even then, the film would probably be thirty minutes, and be comprised of credits and random snippets of dialogue.
