>>27336>Also, I think a big part of the problem is because the writers are incredibly neglected compared to directors, if writers and so writing were more recognized, we would have less shitty screenplays.
Hollywood people just have terrible tastes. They're all pseuds of the highest order. Look up the blacklist+screenplays. The blacklist is a list of unproduced spec screenplays floating around hollywood ranked by the number of reccommendations by hollywood insiders. It's all the most inane oscar-bait trash imaginable.
I do agree writers are actually crazy unrecognized. It's funny how people seem to credit quotable lines to the actors who said them or the famous director who directed the film(assuming they don't write their own screenplays of course.) Like really? Who wrote the actual words you're quoting. Certainly not the actor.
Like for example that Irishmen movie by Scorsese. I read that spec screenplay like back in 2010. It's funny seeing the movie coming out and every one going Scorsese this Scorsese that about the movie. From my perspective that movie was just a visual transposition of the script. Everything happened exactly like I already imagined it from the reading. "Scorsese was indulgent with his long movie, this story choice that story choice." Bro it was exactly like the script was. The script was long and indulgent. Scorsese just followed the fucking blueprints. It's like crediting the foreman instead of the architect for the design of the building.
