Movie Diary 1/24/2017

A Dog’s Purpose (Lasse Hallstrom, 2017). A movie narrated by a dog, who gets reincarnated through different lives. If this hadn’t been directed by someone who knows how to direct movies, I’m not sure I would’ve made it through. (full review 1/27)

D.O.A. (Rudolph Mate, 1950). It must have been longer than I thought since I last watched this one, because a lot of it seemed fresh. Edmond O’Brien’s protagonist must have a bunch of stuff going on, given his restless behavior in the early going, but it’s intriguing that we never find out about any of that because he’s got his hands full with the whole “I’ve been murdered by slow-acting poison” thing.
