Read The Disaster Artist this morning. Not a bad story I find, and especially interesting for people like us who know/get in contact with that whole selling/living the cinema dream. Pretty self-ironic flick it seems, the script at least indicates that. It also works well as a light comedy I think. Definitely it's not the standard garbage this specific genre constantly pushes, rather it's focused and straight material, I'd even say honest to a degree, which is a rare characteristic I believe. In the script you won't find the usual beat sheet plotting where everything is dramatized to raise stakes and produce a certain amount of twists.
The writing itself is pretty focused as well. The authors have a distinct style in emphasizing the dramatic moments, emotional asides, that many rightfully critisize in scripts. But here they do it very quick in the flow of things. One, two lines, in a sense like
Greg taps Tommy's shoulder, squeezes it. A neat moment between them. They turn back to the big screen.
and on it goes
They constantly weave those emphasizing moments in, superfast and unobtrusive, most times in the middle of two active sentences as in my example above, so that it really helps them to transfer the emotional beats as they want it.
