STARTUP.com is a masterpiece documentary because of how it accomplishes the virtual aspect of how difficult it is to not only maintain a business but also a long lasting friendship.

This is exactly where Kaleil and Tom went wrong. STARTUP.com is the story of two best friends since a very young age coming up with an idea of basically paying traffic tickets and registering vehicles online! Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, a savvy business man who left his job at Goldman Sachs felt this idea would be the one that would fulfill his need of money for the rest of his life, and decided to do whatever he could to try and make this idea into a realization. He would later become in charge of all business aspects of the company and C.E.O. Tom Herman, the other half of this project was just in need of money and fast, for he had a daughter that he was unable to take care of. Tom would later become in charge of the technical aspect of the company and C.E.O. This product idea would soon attract a couple of other people to the point where they would even invest their own money just to see this happen. The product would later be named Govworks.com. The earlier aspect of the documentary is to show the viewers what the day of an up and coming businessman entails. Kaleil and Tom would do whatever they could to talk to as many VC’s, introduce to them the proposition of their product, present executive summaries of what they expect from the company and hopefully draw investors; Even if that meant working 18 hours a day. Kaleil would handle the selling of

    Though all 12 jurors are white men, they are a varied crew. They attempt to sit still around the heavy table at the centre of Allen Moyer's set, but in their passion keep leaping up to pace the room, mop their brows and peer out at an oppressively humid New York day. Relying on their analytic abilities - this is the 1950s, years before fancy forensics determined verdicts - they pore over the details of the case. If Rose's dialogue makes one wish occasionally for the more clipped speed of cop-show…
