Go... if you're interested in a career in screenwriting

Though very well done, this film is definitely only for aspiring/working screenwriters -- or people interested in the behind-the-scenes mechanics of filmmaking, specifically the Hollywood film industry. It's not for the casual moviegoer only looking for entertaining anecdotes about toiling in the trenches of the movie business. While those anecdotes are there -- many of them very entertaining -- I suspect that the average viewer would find most of the rest of it rather dull. Even as a professional screenwriter, I found the film a bit too long and somewhat repetitive. I am very glad, however, that the writers were interviewed, their unique personalities captured on video for posterity -- especially the older, seasoned veterans of the craft, one of whom has already been lost (the film is dedicated to Melville Shavelson).

A must see for any aspiring screenwriter. Learns the joys (apparently few) and pitfalls (apparently many) in being a screenwriter in Hollywood. In depth,thoughtful and often funny interviews with many of todays best screenwriters. I saw it at the Aero in Santa Monica which is an excellent place to see any movie. It's the way movies were meant to be seen.. in a classic building, with a staff that loves moves and with a neighborhood feel.

I purchased tickets, but I didn't get to see the movie. We had a mother cat who was hit and killed by a car. I had to rush home to take care of a very weak baby kitty and three other orphaned kittens. I would love to see the movie another time. Thank You, Mary Fry m1022@sbcglobal.net
