Watch List Digest 6/14/24

This is the weekend recap of Ty Burr’s Watch List postings for the week. If you’d like to cut down on in-box clutter and receive this weekly email ONLY, hit the red "Account" button on the top right of the home page, select "manage" under "Email preferences," and untoggle the regular "Watch List" newsletter option, leaving the “Weekly Digest” option toggled on. If you'd like to NOT receive this re-cap, just untoggle the "Weekly Digest" option.

A busy week of writing! Sorry to swamp you, but I figure subscribers should be able to pick and choose. TL:DR – Go see "Thelma," "The Bikeriders," "Ghostlight," or "Janet Planet." Or just rent your favorite Donald Sutherland movie.
