Whether an original concept or an adaptation, the screenplay is the key to the success of a movie—good dialogue, story pacing, and character development are the framework everything else hangs on. Featuring in-depth interviews with modern masters of film including Stephen Gaghan, Guillermo Arriaga, Caroline Thompson, Hossein Amini, and Jean-Claude Carrière, this book reveals the mysteries behind how the best scripts are written and reach the screen.

Not a how to book, but just as important to read if you are, or want to be a screenwriter. The writers interviewed cover a wide variety of genres and methods, and they are all generous with their thoughts and processes. As you read, you learn how they got started, what they were thinking while writing, and their thoughts on the finished product. The book is full of photos from their films, as well as actual script pages and handwritten notes. Everyone who is in the business of making movies will appreciate this book.

Excellent book!
