The NYT published a review of ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD’s “cosmic justice” that basically convinced me the film *is* fascist.
His new film exhibits — perhaps surprisingly — a genuine moral pathos.

Once you’ve moved to the idea that some people “deserve” to be “torn to shreds, bludgeoned to a pulp, burned to a cinder” you’ve pretty much left behind the realm of morality.

The final battle is, quite literally, senseless — stoned Cliff has no idea what is going on, nor does Rick, and yet they brutally murder people w/ zero hesitation or regret. We think it’s “justice” because we have a different context that is essentially just a weird coincidence.
