A clear voice in a room full of gurus. I would love to see this expanded into a longer essay. Nevermind that our attention spans have been reduced to five year olds hooked on a litre of coke. Nevermind that this is a digital publication. In all seriousness, it would be nice to see you develop the “prototype” concept; and to see your take on films/scripts that champion story over formula. At least one film that comes immediately to mind is Paul Schrader’s First Reformed. Could anyone have seen where that masterful story was heading? I think not. And so therein lies that film’s power.
