A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureThe rise of cryptocurrency in the 21st Century is a fascinating development that could have a dramatic affect on the way transactions are processed across the world. Services such as Bitcoin offer complete anonymity and, as a result of complex blockchain protocol, much better security when compared to more traditional bank transfers. It all sounds rather good doesn’t it?

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsThe Blair Witch Project (1999), a 1999 American supernatural horror film, started a new trend in horror movies—the found-footage technique wherein a part of the work is presented as if it were discovered film or video recordings. Now what really makes this look authentic is the grainy quality of the footage as opposed to the crystal clear, high definition image quality that cinema is generally associated with. Ashwin Saravanan’s Tamil-Telugu bilingual horror thriller too relies on the clever use of the found-footage technique (the film is presented by Anurag Kashyap; its Hindi-dubbed versi...
