Open Mike: The Must-See Movies of Paul Thomas Anderson

["Open Mike" is the often off-topic, anything-goes editorial page of TOP. It appears on Wednesdays.] And now for something completely different.

To get around this, I tend to follow threads of some sort—a director I like, an actor, even a writer (who are risky to follow because they usually don't have enough control over the final movie. That's the result of how they're treated, not th...

Super Recognizers

We've talked before about prosopagnosia , the condition also known as face blindness. People who have it lack the normal human ability to recognize other people visually. The example I always think of is Oliver Sacks, the late great writer on neurology. When Dr. Sacks would go to a restaurant to meet his assistant of ten years for lunch, she had to raise her hand so he'd know which table she was at—he couldn't recognize her. Turns out there's an opposite condition—a small number of people are s...

Are You A Pleaser In Your Business? The Number 1 Pattern To Avoid

by Ben Ivey, The Fulfilment Artist First of all let’s see if you are a pleaser: Do you say yes to everything? Do you give in order not to feel? Do you have lots of other people’s drama in your life? Do your own needs aren’t a priority compared to other people? Do you keep forgiving people after they make multiple mistakes? Do you feel you are being manipulated into giving but do it anyway? Do you give and give and give, perhaps even burning out in the process? If any of these points are reson...

For years, cinephiles were convinced they’d never have the opportunity to see director Terry Gilliam‘s long-awaited film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, which had earned a reputation for being cursed after an aborted production effort in the early 2000s that was chronicled in the documentary Lost in La Mancha. Against all odds, Gilliam managed to actually finish the film, but problems with finding a distributor again left the movie’s future uncertain. Now we know the film is definitely coming t...

Real restaurants from TV and movies

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries , bars, and the like are often a vital part of a story’s plot. Maybe it’s where a group of friends have coffee and spend time together or where two characters plan a murder.

Unfortunately, while shows and movies use a myriad of filming locations all over the globe, not all of these are accessible — or even real — for fans to visit...

‘Aladdin’ TV Spot Finally Reveals Will Smith as the Big Blue Genie

When the first teaser trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin first arrived, fans were fairly underwhelmed.
