October Film Diary

Per a friend’s recommendation, I’ve decided to start keeping a film diary.  Due to beginning halfway through the month, I was unable to catalogue everything I’ve watched (leftover film stubs helped me remember anything before October 15), but I still believe an incomplete list is worth posting. An asterisk marks a re-watch.
