#WatchlistScreenCaps, 2/3 - 2/5


Here are the last ten films I watched, with a screen-captured image and caption. Linked titles lead to my posts on that film. In this and the preceding round-up, I watched five mini-"programs" of a short followed by a feature, this time with some link (occasionally loose, often close) between them. Visit my #WatchlistScreenCaps archive for images from everything I've watched in the past year.
