Movie buffs are going to have a great time with Netflix’s July new release movies. The top of the month brings back-to-back career-best flicks from Martin Scorsese with Taxi Driver and Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. Not to mention, they are both 1970s throwbacks, which is a welcome twist on the usual crop of movies from the 2000s decade. Travel back in time with another Scorsese staple when the Academy Award-winner moves into your watch list this July.

Ellen Burstyn stars in Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore as the titular Alice, a widow who moves with her son Tommy from a small town in New Mexico to California. Alice dreams of becoming a singer, but her financial struggles force her to stay put in Arizona and work as a waitress in a diner. She insists she will only stay in Arizona for as long as it takes to save the money needed to get back on the road to California, but when she falls for David (Kris Kristofferson), Alice shifts her priorities.

Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore received positive reception from critics upon release, earning a stellar 88% on Rotten Tomatoes. The film also made a bankable turn at the box office and landed three Academy Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress for Diane Ladd, and Best Actress, which Ellen Burstyn won. In 1976, the film was adapted into the CBS sitcom Alice, which ran for nine seasons. Don’t miss your chance to catch a pop culture classic when it hits Netflix this month.
