Brad Pitt vs Bruce Lee: Postmodern Death Match






Despite the mauling I gave Tarantino's Hateful 8, and despite having promised myself never again to watch one of his movies, Once Upon In Hollywood was getting some fair coverage in our circles so I knuckled down once again to a Tarantino fest.

 And the standout scene of the movie was seeing Brad Pitt humiliating Bruce Lee which genuinely made me laugh out loud, and then the hysterical reaction of the Bruce Lee fanboys added a nice dollop of satisfaction.


In the end though, where is there left to go for postmodern American pop culture other than to trash and humiliate all ideals, all respected figures and all traditions and cultures.
