Coen Brothers are doing a movie about the internet Silk Road

Silk Road was once a thriving online black market selling illegal drugs, weapons and even the services of hitmen, where buyers and sellers dealt in Bitcoins as their main currency.

Ulbricht, who was known in the community under the pseudonym Dread Pirate Roberts, began building it back in 2010. Five years later, he was sentenced to life in prison after he was convicted on seven charges of money laundering, drug trafficking, conspiracy and computer hacking, among other things. The controversial figure also ordered a hit on five people, including a blackmailer, according to a transcript of his conversations with assassins that Wired published. While DPR paid for the hits, nobody actually got killed.

As if those elements weren't enough to make a good thriller, one of the federal agents who investigated the case also received a six-and-a-half year sentence. He was found guilty of stealing $800,000 worth of Bitcoins from the marketplace while the feds were investigating the case.

It's unclear if the Coen brothers will also direct Dark Web, but we're sure a lot of people will be thrilled if they sign up for that part, as well.

The collection of Oscar™ nominated short films starts out pretty sappy, but gets better with the third one and is overall worth a look.
Which part? And who are you?

was watching Hail Caesar last night which I have to admit I don't quite get, but if I'm not mistaken, the Director that Scarlett Johansen has a kid with talks about vacationing in Malmö. Relevant to the news.

Hope they cast Cary Elwes.

Arrival was pretty wild. Still can't quite wrap my head around her exchange(s) with General Shang, but it's a fun exercise

Woo hoo, I saw my second Oscar® nominated film, Manchester by the Sea. It was very well done but I was more impressed by Moonlight, so Moonlight remains my pick for best picture.
