Dear colleagues and Prof Schneider:

I see similar "recommendations" at the bottom of the screen 
frequently. ("If you are buying or bought X, you may also be 
interested in Y, Z, etc.")  

You should be able to find that sort of recommendation  (if it's 
what you have in mind), on one or more of the following three sites:

It seems likely you would need to be a customer of the site, in order 
that the site would "remember" you when you log in and activate 
a search or a purchase on that site.

Good hunting,
Steven P Hill,

Subject: film database? 

Hi everyone, 
A year or so ago I was having a conversation with someone who told me about 
an online film database that would make viewing recommendations for you 
based on a variety of factors.  For instance, if you entered Citizen Kane, 
it would generate a list of "similar" films you might enjoy for a variety of 
reasons (ranging from Touch of Evil to Network, I guess).  It sounded sort 
of like Pandora for movies.  Anyway, does this sound familiar to anyone?  I 
know it wasn't IMDB or Netflix, but I can't for the life of me remember it. 

Many thanks,
