What does it take to write a great script? You'll find the answer here, in the latest of Field's critically acclaimed books on the subject of screenwriting (e.g., Selling a Screenplay, LJ 10/1/89). This time he tackles four box office behemoths, explaining what makes these films work and why. In discussing Thelma and Louise, Terminator 2, The Silence of the Lambs, and Dances with Wolves, Field focuses on structure, characters, and story. His interviews with the films' screenwriters are of particular interest. Whether you're a James B. Cameron wannabe or just a fan of the silver screen, this is Field's masterpiece and a required purchase for all film collections.

"I based Like Water For Chocolate on what I learned in Syd's books. Before, I always felt structure imprisoned me, but what I learned was structure really freed me to focus on the story."—Laura Esquivel

Even if you aren't a screenplay writer, but you love writing, pick up this book. It'll blow you away! I will not say more, but highly encourage writers from any field, to give this book a read. It is outstanding.
Now I am off to buy Screenplay, also by Syd Field and I can't wait to see what treasures I might discover that can turn into jewels for my own writing.
