Writing Movies For Profit

A coworker was raving about this, should I just pick it up?  Based on his description, it's an absolutely hilarious, edifying and quick read.

Yes, its very funny and has a lot of good, practical advice about the process and politics of screenwriting. They make it clear that this is not a book about how to write your personal art film. It is about writing commercial films.

It's very good. It's like a Spike, Mike, Slackers and Dykes of horror. It respects classic horror movies while telling how modern horror films pushed the envelope to make the genre not just about old, dark houses. Makes you wanna go back and rewatch films you've seen before and find others you haven't, or never even heard of.

I found it yesterday at the library, I didn't realize that it was new. From the cover it looks like it's from the 80's. stoked.

It's been a while since I've read a really good book, but I picked this one up at Border's liquidation sale knowing nothing about it and at just five chapters in, I'm absolutely floored. I'm really, really loving it. It's a real joy to read, and I'm smiling as I read it just out of pure enjoyment of the writing.

I'm about 200 pages in and I've sort of stopped after I started watching Breaking Bad (addiction for addiction), but I intend to continue soon. It's a brilliant way to tell a fantasy story.

lots of other books read, but now this:


anyone else?
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.
