Examples of timelines in movies and other pop culture?

I'm looking for examples of visual timelines in movies, video games, or fiction. Scenes where a span of time is represented metaphorically, preferably as a physical object, diagram, or action. A good example is this scene from Me and You and Everyone We Know in which two characters use a street as a visual metaphor for their potential relationship. [more inside]

What are your favorite books, movies, and essays about food?

I am putting together a syllabus for a college composition course. I chose "food" as the theme for this semester. I would like to include examples of different kinds of writing about food, ranging from essays to fiction to poetry, as well as some movies. What are your suggestions? I'm open to anything, as long as it has food in it! I already have a list of some of the obvious ones (Michael Pollan, Dinesen's "Babette's Feast," Jiro Dreams of Sushi), but I am hoping the HiveMind can help me make this the most awesome-- and delicious-- writing class ever.

List of Criterion Movies on Hulu?

Is there a full list of the Criterion movies available on Hulu? Hulu recently borked the searching on their website making it impossible to search on directors or genres (or almost anything). You can browse to the Criterion section of but there doesn't seem to be a "show me all the movies" subsection. Is there a 3rd party site actually that lists them all?

Help me remember this artsy film about the American south.

Help me remember this artsy film about the American south. It came out within the last 5 years I think, I believe there was a number in the title and the theme was something like the modernization of the south. It had 'Koyaanisqatsi' - like composed shots and voice over by a man with a southern accent. I remember a shot of a canoe filled with books inside a flooded building.

iPad to Macbook

I took several long videos (25 - 50 minutes each) with the camera on my new iPad, and now I would like to transfer them to my Macbook, so that I can convert them to .avi files and give them to a friend. Dropbox will not upload them ('upload pending' forever). Backing up the iPad results in many folders with random numbers, none of which look big enough to be the videos. What should I try next?

Inquest Magazine 100 Books and 100 Movies lists

Everything begins and ends at the exactly right time and place

I recently watched "Picnic at Hanging Rock," which was made in 1975. I loved that although the movie was set in 1900, the makeup and hair was so 1970s - long straight middle-parted hair, cats-eye black eyeliner, frosty eyeshadow, an updo that could only have ever been constructed under one of those bubble hairdryers. What are some other "period" movies where the hair and makeup betray the era it was made in? [more inside]
