  • Scripts and writers with the best poetic and evocative writing

    I'm having trouble writing snappy, yet poetic and evocative descriptions. What reading would you recommend?

    I'm looking for writers that have poetic, yet snappy descriptions, that build atmosphere.

        Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri is a good read for that. The script pulls you right in. The TV pilot for the show Fargo (1st season) is a great read. It's one I read for pleasure over and over again.

        Shut In by Melanie Toast has not been made yet, the script is awesome at depicting rural America in a quick, efficient manner.

        Agree with the other poster about Beasts. It's one of the most 'evocative' movies I've ever seen. I haven't read the script, but it must be there on the page.

          If you haven't read it, try Casablanca Casa.PDF (godamongdirectors.com) Written in the old days, Draws you in emotionally. Doesn't waste words and is poetic.

            Here are three films that come to mind: Kundun (1997); Amélie (2001); and Casablanca (1942).

              Nightcrawler script. One of my favorite examples of atmospheric writing, the city is a character in that script.
