The Changeling

Enjoy. I'm pretty sure M. Night Shyamalan lifted a scene from this movie and incorporated it into The Sixth Sense. Hint: it involves a tape recorder.

I'm also trying to get into the swing of the season. Going the classic route this year: Karloff, Lugosi, and Chaney, Sr.

Cars with my boys.

Probably Summer Hours again, and possibly another, more attentive viewing of A Town Called Panic.

More October Horror: Requiem, Eraserhead, 30 Days of Night.

It's more than likely I'll get out to The Town Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps tonight.

Hosting a double screening of Night of the Living Dead and Shaun of the Dead. I was referred to as "local zombie expert Jason Panella" on the Facebook event page. Wow.

Probably watching The Namesake (from Netflix) with my wife at some point. Plus some episodes of Angel season 3 (boy is this season going downhill fast).

I'm also hoping to get some friends together and watching I Walked With a Zombie and either John Carpenter's The Fog or The Thing.

AFI Fest (excuse me, AFI Fest 2010 presented by Audi) starts today. Like last year, it's free, but you'd be wise to reserve tickets in advance.

The one film I must see this year is Godard's Film Socialisme, which the director proclaimed will be his last, but I'm also excited about The Housemaid, Cave of Forgotten Dreams (3-D), and all of "guest artistic director" David Lynch's picks: Sunset Blvd., Hour of the Wolf, Rear Window, Lolita, and Mon Oncle.

Friday night: White Material

Me, too, I think. And if the trip to Charlottesville goes as planned, Paper Moon w/Bogdonovich speaking afterward, and Alamar, also tomorrow.

I also grabbed 35 Shots of Rum to prep for tomorrow, but doubt I'll watch it tonight before I head to the festival.

AFI Fest concluded on Thursday. Seeing Hour of the Wolf in Grauman's Chinese was a pleasure. Experiencing Film Socialisme (sans subtitles) with a packed house was a privilege. I think Godard would have secretly relished the exasperated walkouts.

Watched A Film Unfinished

I only got a chance to get out to see one film this past weekend at the St. Louis International Film Festival. Bomber, a well done indie film. An umemployed British son goes on holiday with his aged parents and they take a road trip to a German village. It is revealed that the father had bombed this village while an RAF pilot during World War II. And the trip reveals some truths about the parents' marriage. It's well acted, and characters are allowed to develop by the spaces and pauses of what isn't said as much as by what the characters say.

Nothing planned, a couple shorts submitted to NBFF to get through, but that won't take long. Have company this week and next, so trips to theater will be rare. However, we now have Roku!! Netflix available on our TV anytime.

A foreign movie can't be stupid.

Have our tickets for Barney's Version tomorrow. We Own the Night and first disc of season 2 of In Treament from Nexflix. I have a doc submitted for NBFF to watch. And if we find time soon I want to stream The Oath.

We're going to watch True Grit tomorrow night. Right now, I'm thinking of taking a bath and finishing a book, but I'm tempted to start my DVD of Tiny Furniture. Maybe I'll sample the latter and see if I like it enough to keep watching.
