I’ve just gotten around to listening to the Creative Screenwriting Q&A between Jeff Goldsmith and Rachel Getting Married writer Jenny Lumet and producer Neda Armian. It’s an excellent conversation, the two women are frank and honest and incisive, and there are some lovely stories about the making of one of my favourite films of the year.
Steve Martin (right) uses the 90 per cent of his brain that isn’t required for acting in Bringing Down the House to write Don Cheadle’s Traitor.
Actually, not so much second thoughts as something interesting discovered after the the review went to print.
In the blog roll to the right you will find a link to the Creative Screenwriting podcast, which is never less than interesting despite host Jeff Goldsmith’s sometimes annoying ability to miss the interesting follow-up question.
Anyway, I make a point of not listening to a podcast until after I’ve seen and reviewed a particular film – I try and watch everything unmediated by anything more than the trailer – but that sometimes means I miss a gem of context that might illuminate (or add value in some other way).
