Reading scripts. Absolutely critical to learn the craft of screenwriting. The focus of this weekly series is a deep structural and thematic analysis of each script we read. Monday: Scene-By-Scene Breakdown. Tuesday: Plot. Wednesday: Characters. Friday: Dialogue. Today: Characters. Characters are the players in our stories. They participate in scenes, move the plot forward through action and dialogue, influence each other, evolve and change. Each has their own distinct backstory, personality, world view, and voice. When a writer does their best, digging deep into their characters, tapping into their souls, the players in our stories magically lift up off the printed page and come to life in a reader’s imagination. This week: The End of the Tour. You may download a PDF of the script here. Screenplay by Donald Margulies, book by David Lipsky. IMDb plot summary: The story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace, which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, ‘Infinite Jest. In effect, this is a two-hander, the relationship between Lipsky and Wallace, and an exploration of each of their psyches. Yes, their road trip happened in real life, but as a , what is it about this pairing that makes it feel like destiny they should intersect. What does Lipsky’s presence cause Wallace’s character to engage as part of his psychological journey. Likewise what does Wallace cause Lipsky to confront in his own psychological journey. Major kudos to Steve Fabian for doing this week’s scene-by-scene breakdown. For Part 1, to read the Scene-By-Scene Breakdown, go here. For Part 2, to read Plot analysis, go here. To download a PDF of the breakdown, go here. To read my 2015 interview with screenwriter Donald Margulies, go here. Tomorrow we shift our focus to the script’s key characters. I am looking for volunteers to read a script and provide a scene-by-scene breakdown for it to be used as part of our weekly series. Beyond your name being noted here, my thanks, and some creative juju, hopefully you will learn something about story structure and develop another skill set which is super helpful in learning and practicing the craft.

Asserting that societys ideals of nationhood, race, gender, and class are mainly to blame for the apprehension and experience of war, this book applies theories of contemporary cultural studies to the analysis of war. In order to draw the lines clearly between fiction, myth and ideology in the construction and deconstruction of war, the author offers an analysis of a broad range of war fictions -- popular fiction, journals, memoirs, contemporary press coverage, histories and official government reports, as well as photographic, graphic and cinematic treatments -- drawn from or reflecting on the conflicts in Vietnam, the two world wars, the Spanish Civil War and the conflicts in the Gulf and the Falklands.
