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’m a massive Diane Lane fan boy, and this weekend I dug out Untraceable from 2008, a ‘Silence of The Lambs’ style serial killer film, with an internet slant.
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.
As a busy UK script consultant I still make time to watch as many new films as possible (even if, for the most part, I prefer older films). At the moment you can’t get much newer than Extraction (2020) a new film from director and stunt co-ordinator Sam Hargrave.
As the hardest working UK script consultant in the business, I’ve been around long enough to remember the big fight at Cannes 89, when Spike Lee’s festival favourite Do The Right Thing was snubbed by the Jury.
