New film blog: Resist Edison Trust

Google Alerts alerted me to the existence of a new blog, called Resist Edison Trust. From the intro:

"During the 1900's Thomas Edison was in control of a trust called the Motion Picture Patents Company or "Edison Trust". Founded in December of 1908, the trust had control over all major film companies, the leading distributor, and the biggest supplier of raw film. At the time of the formation of MPPC, Thomas Edison owned most of the patents relating to motion pictures. The MPPC strongly enforced it's patents, and as a result many filmmakers responded by building their own cameras and moving to California in order to resist the Edison trust."

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
