Re: The Irishman

ICYMI, for those in the NY area, "The Irishman" is being screened at Broadway's Belasco Theater through 12/1. Guilliermo del Toro calls the film a masterpiece on Twitter today. Assuming this will...

Re: WGA files RICO case vs. ATA in Federal District Court

Useful take on the new RICO charges by a writer'IP lawyer Robb Chavis, much of it echoing the comments of J. Banks above, with a few additional notes....

Re: WGA files RICO case vs. ATA in Federal District Court

Thanks for fleshing the case(s) out. What you says seems more or less to agree with my own anecdotal experience. In dealing with USAAs while researching a couple of federal cases, I was amazed by...

WGA files RICO case vs. ATA in Federal District Court

Although 'Deadline' appears to have buried the lede in this story and is predictably spinning the legal changes as a victory for ICM, it's clear that the WGA has now decided to take the fight vs. the...

Re: First ATA agency breaks ranks

From what Mazin says, it's clear he's not concerned that packaging is, and has always been, a form of racketeering, as David Simon has said. It's a crime which should have prosecuted under the RICO...

Gavin Polone to writers: "Don't fold, you've got the nuts"

Although this piece is a couple of months old, and is somewhat off-thread, it seemed still worth posting, since Polone is a very sharp and knowledgeable observer of the business, and makes a number...

Re: Do You Think My Producer Was Racist - SCRIPTFELLA

Certainly some of those notes were racist, but this story, as you tell it, borders on incoherence. You never name or describe the original IP -- if it featured a primarily white cast in a South...

Re: Turnaround questions

I hope that others more knowledgeable will comment, but one example, not especially recent, is "Michael Clayton" which received an AA nomination for best screenplay. I had heard about this great...

Re: Daily Beast article

Not to blame the son for the sins of the father, but it seems there is a certain consistency in the sociopathic lack of concern for others that has been passed down -- along with the money and power...

Why I Left My Agent: 'Grey's Anatomy' writer Krista Vernoff

Interesting and timely piece re the current WGA-ATA battle. Notable that the writer likes her agent very much -- the issue isn't personal. The following excerpt from her article should have...

WGA votes to restrict agency packaging

Re: My Brilliant Friend

Thx. for heads-up -- will try to catch this. Elena Ferrante arguably the best writer to have emerged thus far in the 21st century. Canonical status? I believe so.

Re: William Goldman, Writer Behind 'Butch Cassidy,' 'Princess Bride,' Dies At 87

Somewhat surprised by lack of comment re Goldman on a site like this. I imagine Tony Gilroy, who knew him well from childhood, will weigh in with a memorial at some point. Regardless, below a link to...

Re: To elide

Elision is such a broad notion that it's difficult to know what you're referring to. If it's to something like withholding key scenes, as in the last episode of 'The Sopranos' or the 'objective'...

Re: American Made

After speaking with someone who saw the film, it's apparent that it does, in fact, imply that the brother-in-law character is killed by the cartel -- there is no cut to the Domhnall Gleason CIA...

Re: American Made

Hi Andrew,

This may have been a change in the film from the script, which makes it quite clear that the brother-in-law character (called Doughboy in the script, JB in the film) is killed by the CIA...

Re: American Made

*spoilers*

I understand the film departs in some ways from the script I read some time back, which was titled 'Mena'. But I have heard, the scene in which his brother-in-law is killed, is the same....

Not exactly sure what you're looking for. AN was ranked as the eighth or ninth best film ever made by two-hundred directors in the prestigious 'Sight and Sound' 2012 poll, so I'm not sure that any...

Re: Hell Or High Water

I thought the 'Comancheria' script was excellent -- a couple of notches better than 'Sicario' -- so I'm primed to see this. A few people in the business have told me it's the best film they've seen...
