  1. I craved Hollaway and Sanders performances while I watched the new version this past weekend. And I just couldn’t with the bizarre indulgent choices allowed (ultimately it’s the director’s fault) for King Louie. That whole Brooklyn accent thing made no sense at all in a film that ostensibly takes place in pre-modern India and in a film where no other character has a distracting accent (did Shere Khan have an Elngish accent? I can’t recall).
