A STREET CAT NAMED BOB REVIEWED
“A Street Cat Named Bob” is a heart warming film about the power that cats hold over our lives. Well, this time it’s a street cat saving a heroin addict from his addictive past. They meet a woman, the cat goes to the Vet and then they start busking. “Sing Street” and “Once” this is not. What the film manages to do is get veteran director Roger Spottiswoode to put some insane talent behind what could’ve been a TV movie.
The film runs a little long for what amounts to a Benji movie with a stray cat. Thankfully, the busker music isn’t terrible. Solid music and great sense of playing around the London streets provides for a sheer audio/video appeal. But, I don’t get why we couldn’t get a lossless audio track on the disc. Oh well, it still works for me.
