Startup.com : 4 of 5
I heard about this documentary back when it hit the theaters (I think I read about it on Billy's site), so I'm glad it made it to DVD. The movie is as entertaining as it is sad, following the rise and fall of an internet startup from the moment one of the founders quits his old job right down to the day the founders end up with zero dollars to show for their effort. The film makers were incredibly lucky to be able to follow these people around for so long, having no idea where the economy was heading or what would happen to the company. It was pretty fascinating to see all of these politics unfold, driven by noble intentions, but pretty cruel despite the dreams that inspired the company in the first place. Even though the movie is the story of failure, I felt inspired by the fact that people can attempt to do anything, and if it doesn't work out, it's not the end of the world.
