This book approaches screenwriting from another angle. If films like Memento, Groundhog Day, Pulp Fiction or The Truman Show are your kind of films, then do yourself a favor a have a read at it. It instructs stuff that i’ve, personally, didn’t read in no other screenwriting book and i read quite a lot and found them all usefull. Some stuff, i must admit, is quite hard to digest at a first read but it starts to fall into place from further re-reading.
