  1. :

    Haggis and Moresco couldn’t have said it any better and they have the Academy Award. Your dissection of every plot line blending into the other is so on the money. I even picked up some nuances from you, and I’ve seen the film 412 times. Thanks. Every upcoming screenwriter should read this. Come to think of it, almost every screenwriter should read this.

  2. :

    No study of the workings of a film script is better analyzed and better written than this. Seger is better at this than any books I’ve read about writing screenplays.

  3. :

    We go to movies with friends so we can talk about them afterwards. Reading And the Best Screen- play is like going to the movies with your best friend, if your best friend was the smartest person you’ve ever met you come out loving the movie even more after you’ve heard her tell you why you loved it in the first place.
