Let's try this again on Monday.
In the meantime -- and still inspired by Mr. McGrath's great posting here about increasing your story literacy -- here's an interesting interview with Paddy Chayefsky, talking about a little film he wrote called 'Network'.
Now, if you haven't seen it, you really owe it to yourself to check this movie out... 'cause even though it's over three decades old, it blows me away at just how relevant it is in this day and age.
Truly the hallmark of a great film. Or any work of Art, really.
Just so you know... that interview happened back in about 1976. I'd say he was pretty far ahead of the curve there... on a whole host of points.
And, of course, I'd be remiss if I put a post up about Mr. Chayefsky and 'Network' without sharing the most famous scene of the movie. Again, if you haven't yet seen the film, rent it. Find it on Netflix or whatever and give it a watch.
