  1. How in the world is Once Upon A Time In Hollywood a fantasy movie?

    Well, it is alternate history, since Funeba Gngr naq ure pbzcnavbaf jrer zheqrerq va bhe ernyvgl, ohg fheivir va gur zbivr.

  2. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is the fantasy of how the story should have played out.
    Maybe Colin Kuskie is not old enough to remember the occurrences on which it is based, and how it really went down.
