    One thought on “Guide to Screenplay Structure”

    1. After all the books on storytelling, fiction writing, and screenwriting I've read I wondered if this would really add anything new. But O'Bannon has written the scripts for two of my favorite movies so I couldn't exactly ignore this when I saw it was coming out. What you get here is not so much anything "new" (as if you could expect that with storytelling anyway), but rather O'Bannon's own formulation of the traditional three-act dramatic narrative. As is often the case when an insightful practi [...]

    2. This is an amazing book. I've read a number of these screenwriting manuals, and this book still managed to surprise me with juicy nuggets of advice. It's pretty hard to surprise people who've been in H'wood for a while. Highly recommend.

    3. Someone had already filled out all of the exercises in this book with dirty limericks about my dad.

    4. Really wanted to like this book, but about half way through you realise there's not much substance and a lot of talk. Dan's "system" seems incredibly basic (which is fine, but doesn't need a whole book to explain), and while it's good to hear a screenwriter talk about all the other must-read screenwriting books out there, his assessment of them starts to feel like high school essays. The end meanders until it runs out of content. The best thing I learnt from this book is not to trust strict stru [...]

    5. It's focused, but a bit dry -- as these books can be. The last ten or so pages, however, offer some welcome truths about the movie business.
