3.7.2015 The Jungle Book

One of my favorite films as a child, it doesn’t hold up on the whole, though the few standout songs still are great. The story is a bit tedious and you again get a Disney protagonist that is pretty bland, especially in comparisons to their surroundings. Perhaps this is intentional, a kind of straight-man for the children to identify with, but it doesn’t make great viewing as an adult.

I just can’t get into Melville. It is always just surface level pleasures for me and the romantic macho shit gets very tiring.  I used to say this was my favorite of his, having only seen it once long ago and having only seen a small handful of his films.  I don’t know, it seems silly to even pick a favorite.  Maybe one day I will find one that works for me.
