Have you seen Side Effects?
I wanted to see this movie anyway, but now I’m doubly pumped because Larry Brooks, ‘the Storyfixer,” is offering a class. He’s going to be breaking down exactly why this screenplay is getting such great reviews. A storytelling clinic!
Check out his post on Deconstructing Side Effects.
I hope I don’t spoil the movie for Punk, because I’m gonna take this seriously. No popcorn, no candy, no hand-holding. Just pen, paper, and scholarship. Sounds like a HOT date to me.
I’m a little scared to read Brooks’s follow-up post previewing the forthcoming deconstruction because he warns of spoilers. I’ll read it before heading out the door on my way to the theater =)
Right now I’m off to explore all the film-centric blogs highlighted in today’s Daily Post. It’s shaping up to be a watching (rather than writing) weekend. I can’t wait!
