New on the streaming services.

Bit of a lean day. Amazon Prime has Tucker: The Man and His Dream by friend of the MCU Francis Ford Coppola and MUBI offers Melville's Le Cercle Rouge.  In the should have been a theatrical bracket, Curzon has The Truth and Dogs Don't Wear Pants.

So that they don't leave left out, my retrospective Netflix pic would be Man on a Ledge which is exactly the film you would expect it to be until it isn't.  Has an absolutely barnstorming performance from Elizabeth Banks which reminds us what a multi-faceted artist she is.
