These images depict the similarities between 5000 movies as found by an algorithm used for the Netflix Prize (see www.netflixprize.com for details).
NOTE: This are very high resolution, large format screenshots (7000 pixels x 7000 pixels). We recommend clicking "all sizes" above the image to see the largest screenshot, and panning / zooming around the image to see the movie titles and other details.
In the images, movies are represented by dots (some images contain adjacent movie titles as well). Similar movies --- as determined by customer rating patterns --- are connected by a line. When colors are used, colors closer to red indicate a weaker similarity, and colors closer to yellow indicate a stronger similarity. As you can see, many similarly-rated movies tend to cluster around topics, themes, directors, or actors.
