Here’s some useful trivia I just found out (and highly recommend)- Robert Ebert has three volumes of “Great Movies“. Pretty sweet! Dang, guess what else?! He also has a book of film. It’s a beast, but not too expensive (no more than 40 bucks for a hardback) on Amazon. Upon the mailman drop-off, I will get out the word on this mammoth.
And I will do the Tarantino review on Reservoir Dogs.
Im reading Sy Field. You know what the text is. Im finding hidden action all throughout the text. If you do write screenplays, you should consider reading, SCREENPLAY: The Foundations of Screenwriting. If you want to succeed in your personal life, give meaning to action, then read this how to book. You wont be disappointed.
“Screenwriting: The Foundations of Screenwriting”, by Syd Field. Oh yeah? There you go- now you know what I do. Anyway, my man Syd is a jokester. Not really, he’s actually uber insightful. He know’s how to get down to the nitty gritty. I mean that. If you don’t know, Syd Field is ole big granddaddy prof for underling of screenwriting. I take that back. Field is the master overall for writers. Sort of similar (here and there) to King’s non-fiction piece, “On Writing”.
By the way, what does “gangster of love” infer? Because gangster’s are savages. They kill others, are possible sociopaths, extort money from the naive, rob, kill. Well, that’s it- it is what it is.
Let’s talk movies next,
