The Secret Life of Pets (2016), Chris Renaud, Yarrow Cheney ★★★★
Excellent opening scene, great songs (Bill Withers, Queen), Louis C.K. What’s not to like? There’s even a Pee-wee’s Big Adventure Dotty character, who you’ll instantly recognize (not Elizabeth Daily this time).
Babette’s Feast (1987), Gabriel Axel ★★★★★ rewatch
Ranked near the top (ok, at the top) of the all time great food movies; including Mostly Martha (2001), Eat Drink Man Woman (1994), Big Night (1996), Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011), and many more.
The Bounty Hunter (1954), Andre DeToth ★★★★
TCM has westerns every Tuesday and Wednesday in July, and I caught this one with Randolph Scott.
The Devil’s Disciple (1959), Guy Hamilton ★★★
Tarr Bela: I Used to Be a Filmmaker (2013), Jean-Marc Lamoure ★★★★
