Quentin Tarantino likely had a pretty solid day so far. His latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, had its first trailer drop ahead of its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Then, once the film actually screened, reactions online were largely positive. now, according to a report from THR, the film received quite the reception from the Cannes Film Festival audience, with it getting a six-minute standing ovation.

“To my wonderful actors, producers and the studio that helped me make this movie,” Tarantino told the audience. “Thank you for being such a fantastic audience, for the first time we ever showed it to an audience. See you on the Croisette!”

The premiere of this film comes 25 years to the day after Pulp Fiction kicked Tarantino up to the next level in terms of his prestige, so I’m sure the man is still soaking up the praise from that screening right now. But the good news for him doesn’t end there. First reviews have popped up on the review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes — six, to be more specific.

And all of them are positive. Check them out below.

As of right now, there aren’t enough to constitute a 100%, but it’s off to a good start.
