On an early episode of Bootstrapped there was a discussion of movies that Andrey watches while coding. Many of them I’ve seen but this weekend I came across a list of some newer stuff about half of it I’ve never heard of. So I thought I’d share.

That movie came out at the worst possible time ever – right around 9/11. I totally related to the plight of the 2 characters as I was going through a similar thing myself up north in Montreal. The good news is that their friendship endured and they went on to create other successful businesses together. Friendship over money – always…
