A major year for cinema, 1999 challenged movie audiences with rich, thought-provoking, psychological storytelling. It was the year of “Magnolia,” “Eyes Wide Shut,” “Being John Malkovich,” “The Matrix” and “The Sixth Sense.” But there was one film that forever changed the way audiences approached the relationship between illusion and reality onscreen: David Fincher’s “Fight Club.” So for all five fan theories on the mind bending film go here.
Local Lens: Collecting Everyday Scenes in Chile

Valentina Greene (@valentinagreene) is always going beyond the surface when she’s photographing a scene. “I enjoy looking beyond the things people usually see—like backyards or barns,” she says. “Behind facades and behind the scenes for the real deal. It’s my way of trying to get to know people and their stories.” Among Valentina’s favorite local places in Chile are the tiny towns near Lago Vichuquen. She says, “I am inspired by traces or clues that reflect people’s daily lives. Things that seem unimportant are precious to me.” Valentina also loves photographing the beach in Maitencillo, “I like its minimal scenario.” In her hometown of Santiago, Valentina recommends La Vega, a street market “full of color, noise, smells, dogs and the best characters.”
The sawfish uses its long, toothed rostrum not for killing, but for immobilizing. Also known as the carpenter shark, its nose is covered in electrosensitive pores that detect small movements in the water. When it detects food nearby, the shark slashes its nose through the water to stun prey long enough to gobble it up.
