What I didn’t learn in PowerPoint school.

Finally got this beautiful chart from last weekend’s Sunday Times scanned (thanks, Laura!). It struck me as a gorgeous and complex way to display information that could have otherwise been illustrated in a couple boring pie charts or bar graphs, despite looking a little like a river of poo. It’s somewhat hard to read here, but it shows the 2007 box office earnings and time in theaters of the big blockbusters and smaller-release films, pointing to Oscar nominations (notice how they’re almost always in the white). You can also see a streamlined version of it here as an interactive chart that extends back to 1986.
