Hatari! ★★★★

A relaxed late career hangout movie from a legend featuring a great score by Henry Mancini. If this was Howard Hawks' final movie it would make a hell of a fitting swan song. It's very much in keeping with the spirit of Only Angels Have Wings and Rio Bravo without any real narrative. It's just the characters and dialogue keeping this thing afloat for 2 hours and 40 minutes and it works pretty darn well.

Hatari! is in dire need of remastering. The current "HD master" is appalling. It looks like a soupy and indistinct VHS era master.
