FilmStruck, the film streaming service from Turner Classic Movies that housed classics from the Golden Age of Hollywood as well as the Criterion Collection’s extensive library, will end on Nov. 29, according to an announcement on the site. “We would like to thank our many fans and loyal customers who supported us. Filmstruck was truly a labor of love, and in a world with an abundance of entertainment options — THANK YOU for choosing us,” it reads.

This week, I find myself badly in need of a haircut, and the prospect is worrying me slightly. Not that I inherently fear such things, you understand. My barber is a trustworthy type, and his establishment far from any local pie shop. I have no worries on that front.
