Screen & Stage
Annotate your scenes to keep your narrative on track. Then the script's conceptual truism is indisputable.
Writer William Goldman presented the most devastating truth of chicanery, skullduggery, the Watergate scandal's underhandedness of our government's worse instincts. It revealed the Nixon administration as the criminal of the time. Tagline: A slap in the face of how partisan politics conspire to deny, deny, deny.
Though diametrically opposed critics have accused Stone of speculative authenticity, Stone, along with writers Stephen J. Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson, made copious annotations drawn from Nixon's tapes, transcripts and documents that provide, in dense detail, a titanic narrative of a president's gut-wrenching struggle in the hubris of executive power. Tagline: Biopic films utilize dramatic conceptualization; the axiom of cinematic art.
So what does the Academy herald as its latest triumph? That would be the film adaptation of E. Annie Proulx's brilliant literary publication, Brokeback Mountain. It reminds me of a Bridges Of Madison County sequel wherein love counters all, but not when it comes to stopping crimes against humanity. Tagline: A disturbing truth for homophobes that the force of love knows no gender, even in infidelity.
For three years I've been documenting the U.S. initiated occupation of Iraq, annotating to date 130 footnotes totaling 47 pages of cross-referencing media, military and eyewitness reports juxtaposed with real-life, unembedded journalist Dahr Jamail's coverage of the two sieges of Fallujah that caused untold thousands of civilians deaths. The short version is a WGA-registered screenplay titled Iraq Dispatches.
By taking Mr. Stone's lead and supportive of Mr. Clooney's insights, I have a second script draft - the long version — footnoting all references to my dramatic conceptualization of noncombatant deaths that violated the Charter of the United Nations, the Geneva Convention and Principles of the Nuremberg Tribunal.
Tagline: The truth is the strongest defense.
