It's that time again! May releases:

Scorsese Shorts - Of these, I've only seen "The Big Shave", which was decent but I have little interest in the others. Pass.

Husbands - second tier Cassavetes for me. But I haven't seen it in over 12 years, and for me Cassavetes always improves with repeat viewings. Probable purchase.

Dance, Girl, Dance - haven't seen, sounds mildly interesting (especially for the feminist angle) but also I really don't like Maureen O'Hara much. Maybe rental?

Wildlide - Paul Dano made a movie? Nothing about this is calling out to me. Pass.

The Great Escape - sure, I enjoy it but I've seen it a couple of times and have no burning desire to see it again. Pass.

Six Moral Tales - not a big Rohmer guy. Pass.

I was surprised to see this on the list. But it is severely underseen and underrated.

I think digital rental is the only way to see it. Don't think it is on any streaming service and didn't have a DVD release seemingly until now...maybe my library will get it now.
