Could somebody clarify for me the difference between "Ich sehe einen Film" and "ich sehe mir einen film an"

In this case it is interchangeable.

Usually "sehen" is "to see" and "ansehen" more like "to look at" or "to watch", it is kind of intentional. But for some reason it is usual to use the unintentional "sehen" for movies.

A better english translation would indeed be I watch a movie.
