Tales from the Script DVD Review

Tales from the Script DVD Review

Synopsis: Shane Black (Lethal Weapon), John Carpenter (Halloween), Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption), William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver), and dozens of other Hollywood screenwriters share penetrating insights and hilarious anecdotes in Peter Hanson's TALES FROM THE SCRIPT, the most comprehensive documentary ever made about screenwriting. By analyzing their triumphs and recalling their failures, the participants explain how successful writers develop the skills necessary for toughing out careers in one of the world's most competitive industries. They also reveal the untold stories behind some of the greatest screenplays ever written, describing their adventures with luminaries including Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman, Stanley Kubrick, Joel Silver, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg.

Review:  We love documentary filmmaking around the Legion offices and let me tell you right off the cuff, this was a great documentary film.   Its not often that you get to hear from the screenwriters out there, they tend to be the unsung heroes of the movie industry.  In Tales from the Script we get writer after writer talking about their adventures in getting a script written and even more difficultly, noticed!

You get to see everyone from Tim Burton (w00t!) to Spielberg in this candid look behind the scenes of Hollywood.  Its a great watch.
