People who try to dowload digital copies of movies via the internet are routinely impeded by "the last ten feet" problem. According to the New York Times, however, that soon may change.

Also from NYT: Joseph Stefano, scriptwriter of Psycho -- both the original, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Anthony Perkins, and the redundant remake -- and co-creator of TV's The Outer Limits, died last week at age 84.

But wait, there's more: Indiewire gets the scoop on what films will be showing this weekend at the 2006 Telluride Film Festival. Meanwhile, over at Slate: Bryan Curtis offers an amusing and insightful take on "our strange fascination with box-office numbers." And the ever-essential Green Cine Daily measures early response to Brian de Palma's The Black Dahlia at the Venice Film Festival.
