Funding Friday: Helping Healthcare Workers

As the coronavirus pandemic spreads across the US, the people who are stepping up the most to meet this challenge are our country’s healthcare workers. We should do everything we can to help make sure they can work safely during this crisis. So today I am highlighting two fundraisers for protective equipment for these health care workers. Both are on GoFundMe (which happens to be a USV portfolio company but that is just a coincidence here). I have given to both of them. A Million Masks For...

17 Of The Greatest Movie Endings, Ever

The first scene of a film is the hook. It reels you in and convinces you to dedicate the next one, two, or even three hours of your life to going down the rabbit hole of the movie director's imagined world. But arguably most memorable — even more so than a sex scene — is the final scene of a movie. It's the last impression you have and can leave you with a lingering feeling of wanting more. And it can completely change your viewing experience. It can also be the best scene of a movie for that ...

"To walk down the street with him is just a reminder that, no matter how boring you think the day is, there are always interesting things around you."

He is just this super-voracious observer of everything."Said Jen Bekman, an online art curator, quoted in "Jason Polan, an artist who set out to draw every person in New York, has died at 37" (WaPo)(Polan died of cancer).Bekman said the idea for drawing every person in New York grew from the MoMa project [in which he drew every piece of art in the Museum of Modern Art].

"[Film] critic Sheila O’Malley wrote about the phenomenon of 'back-ting,' in which an actor is turned away from the audience...."

"'To this day, I am fascinated by moments when actors turn their backs on the camera. It is actor as storyteller, actor as auteur.' Rewatching... Fight Club, I was surprised by just how many moments of back-ting there were, the most mesmerizing of which occurs in an early scene, when the eponymous club is just starting to gain traction. Tyler Durden (Pitt) is simply walking through a bar to the tune of 'Going Out West' by Tom Waits.""But in this singular moment, we can see, even from behind, tha...

In ‘Motherless Brooklyn,’ Edward Norton Takes on Timeless Power Struggles

Edward Norton Compares His Original Vision of ‘The Incredible Hulk’ to Prometheus

Before Marvel was the well-oiled machine it is today, it went through a few growing pains. And unfortunately, 2008’s The Incredible Hulk became one of the prime examples of those pains. The Edward Norton-starring superhero movie was notoriously plagued with on-set creative disputes between its star and the studios (the film was a co-production between Marvel Studios and Universal), who clashed over their visions for The Incredible Hulk. While we never got to see Norton’s version, the actor rece...

#1 Movie Dark Fate Self-Terminates at the Box Office
