As a script writer for hire and UK script consultant I caught up with Michael Winterbottom’s ‘Greed’ this week. A kind of comedy biography of a UK retail tycoon, not unlike Arcadia Group’s disgraced (but still stomping around) ‘Sir’ Phillip Green (last time I call him ‘Sir’ here).
As a a script writer for hire and UK script consultant I really enjoyed The Vast of Night (2019), an odd, old fashioned treat of a sci-fi film. Despite enjoying it a lot, it did get on my nerves from time to time (especially early on), and I’m not sure it’s for everyone.
At the start of this blogpost I have to point out that The Wizard of Lies (2017) is a HBO TV Movie, that is, a TV movie, premiering on the small screen and starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer and directed by Barry Levinson.
