I watched a few movies today, 9.6.10.
Arrival Of A Train (1899) is one of Lumiere’s works.
The Alice In Wonderland was created in 1903, and I watched it for free courtesy of MUBI. Apparently the only print was destroyed and salvaged.
I also watched Lonesome Jim, directed by Steve Buscemi, which is not yet on MUBI. It stars Casey Affleck as a chronically depressed writer, who has come home to his family in Indiana after his journey to New York, which has evidently not been so fruitful. In coming home, he discovers that his family is not so naively content with their lives as he may have imagined.
Igby Goes Down (2002)
Regeneration (1915), directed by Raoul Walsh. A very early narrative film, silent, depicting the life of Owen, from his troubled childhood beginnings after he is orphaned, to his early twenties where he has assumed the role of “the gangster,” and ultimately seeks redemption when he meets his “Mamie Rose”, a “gentle-spirited” affluent girl who devotes her life to helping those in poverty. Powerful and kindhearted, Owen’s closest companion is the hunchback he saved from the hands of another gangster. Notable screen shots include a man with an elephantiasis-like ailment of the nose, and a man hiding his goldfish-ridden pint of ale with his hat.
Adaptation. (2002): I had seen this film years ago, but watched it again today.

11.16.10 – UPDATE
I’ve sort of let my detailed descriptions of this list go, so I guess I’ll pick it back up again. Starting in December, I’m going to make a monthly log instead of just this giant list, I think it will be a bit more accessible that way. I’m renaming this list “films viewed between 9.6.10 and 11.30.10” All subsequent list will simply be titled “films viewed: month.year.”
