Top 3 Bitcoin Movies You Need to Watch

Obsessed with bitcoins? Perhaps you would like to see it being featured in a movie. The following are three of the best movies that depict bitcoin in creative and exciting plots.

The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin

This is an American documentary directed by Nicholas Mross and written by Patrick Lope, Daniel Mross, and Nicholas Mross. Released in October 2014, the film follows the bitcoin exploration of Daniel Mross, a computer programmer who is an avid fan of cryptocurrency. He has been fascinated by bitcoin ever since he discovered it in 2011.

This documentary film was created upon the belief (by its creators) that bitcoin is the future of currency. According to the filmmakers, The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin is meant to help expedite the process of adopting bitcoins.

The film features Daniel Mross going to different parts of the world to meet people who are doing their part to help treat the future for bitcoin. Mross interviews bitcoin’s pioneers and dedicated supporters who had to go through a lot before they found success as bitcoin finally rose to where it is now.

Banking on Bitcoin

A Netflix feature film, Banking on Bitcoin is a historical documentary directed by Christopher Cannucciari. It presents the beginnings of bitcoin and its subsequent rise to becoming the most popular cryptocurrency at present. It serves as a good introduction to the world of cryptocurrency.

Bearing the tagline “In Open Source We Trust,” this film explores bitcoin, perceived to be most disruptive invention since the internet, as it sets an ideological battle between mainstream capitalists and fringe utopists. Banking on Bitcoin presents leading personalities associated with bitcoin such as David Chaum, Charlie Shrem, Erik Voorhees, and the Winklevoss twins, who are seen to be defining how this cryptocurrency is shaping people’s lives.

Bitcoin Heist

It’s not exactly the kind of action movie you would be willing to spend money on. Bitcoin Heist is a Vietnamese movie with not so flattering reviews. Its plot revolves around an Interpol agent’s efforts to catch the world’s most wanted thief, an international money launderer. In the process, he had to assemble an elite group of hackers and come up with a sophisticated plan to conduct a cryptocurrency heist.

Bitcoin Heist cannot be compared to well thought out and smart heist movies. However, the bitcoin elements in it can be enough to hold the attention of a bitcoin enthusiast. The bitcoin details can be intriguing but for some who know a lot about bitcoins, the movie may catch their attention because they want to scrutinize each and every detail.

The movie has a lot of cliches but there’s enough action to make it enjoyable. If you are new to Vietnamese movies, you might find movie refreshingly interesting. It can be said that it’s slightly better than many of the crime thrillers churned out by many Chinese movie outfits.

Not many movies featuring bitcoin have been released yet so bitcoin fans can still expect considerably better movies about their favourite currency in the future. For now, if you are looking for a movie that features bitcoin, the ones listed above can be good choices to spend an hour or so with.

End Of Longing Leaves A Bitter-Sweet Feeling!

The comedy drama that is written by Matthew Perry who also is the main lead in this play is world premiering in West End of London. The story of the play revolves around the four people in their early forties who are in search of finding meaning and purpose in life.
Matthew Perry is a well-known star from the comedy TV series Friends. The new play written by and featuring Perry, is a comedy. This is about an alcoholic and he confesses that openly. He dates a sex worker. The character is played by Jennifer Mudge. There is a deal between them that Mudge has no say regarding his drinking habit until the time Perry does not have a problem with her profession as a sex worker.
The play is great until the first half. The audiences are genuinely amused with the one-liners and situations portrayed. However, as the play progresses, there is a little flaccidity which creeps in. The hospital and a therapist’s office situations and monologues make the play a bit offbeat.
In the meantime, the friend of Mudge who is a pharmaceutical representative and also in her early forties is worried about aging, and Mudge as well, as she talk about their life. This conversation is overheard by Jack who is a professional photographer, and he gets highly impressed by the way Mudge is talking so unapologetically of her profession. But it turns out that this photographer that is played by Lloyd Owen is friends with Jack (Perry) and has also slept with Stevie, the pharma rep.
Now when the four of them meet each other, Stephanie gets attracted to Jack but ends up having Joseph’s baby, and she decides to keep it. This confusion leads to a situation that is comic, and that leads to such complexity in the situations between these four people. However, at the end, the only person who remains relevant is Jack and the pain that he goes through.

Matthew Perry’s Play Is Worth Watching!

The play written by Matthew Perry is definitely something to look forward to because he has tried to bring the format of TV on the stage. The scenes are short, and the lines spoken by the characters are smart. All the characters are trying to make sense of their relationship as well as their presence on the stage. This play is mostly about Jack, who is played by Perry who is an alcoholic. He is in a relationship with a sex worker Stephanie who is not at all ashamed of her profession. In fact, these two have a condition in their relationship that neither Stephanie would nudge him about his alcoholism nor Jack would question her about her profession. Now, these two get to meet Stevie who is a pharma rep and also a friend of Stephanie and Joseph who is a photographer. The intermingling of stories starts from here.
The start of the play sees all the four characters bluntly introducing themselves as an alcoholic, whore, pharmaceutical representative and stupid. The characters could have helped the characters of each other evolve better but it turns out there is hardly any evolution and the whole story revolves around the sorry state of affairs of Jack the alcoholic.
