THE DANCER UPSTAIRS (thriller, drama)
101 pgs (low budget)
After meeting the dancer who lives upstairs a loner finds a deadly new purpose in life, and possibly a chance at redemption.
The LIST (action, crime)
97 pgs (low to medium budget)
An old criminal on his deathbed feels the urge to correct mistakes of
his past, a desire to reconnect with the family he drove apart with
his criminal empire and illegal activities. The only way he knows is
to destroy everything he helped build, the monsters he has created -
and there is only one person he knows who can get the job done.
I've included a review of The List from the unsung critic (screenplay reviewer)
who I feel gives you a great idea of my writing style.
Most people have one, the list of things they want to do... or people
they want to get before they die. Harvey is the man who can make it
happen for you, for the right price. When an old man tries to make
amends for the wrongs he's committed, and get out of a business that
tore his family apart he calls on Harvey to get the job done. Harvey
may not be the most professional person, but he has one guarantee...
the list will be completed.
In style and tone, the script reminded me of the dark, gritty Mel
Gibson thriller PAYBACK
So why have I chosen THE LIST as my first script endorsement? Because,
truth be told, it demonstrates a definite writing talent. Star has
three big strengths here. First is the way in which the story unfolds.
Rather than an over reliance on expository dialogue (so common to
fresh screenwriters), Star tells his story with great efficiency of
dialogue and prose, while slowly unraveling his characters’
backstories just a little bit at a time. This latter point, in
particular, is quite refreshing.
Second strength: the action scenes. THE LIST clocks in at a fairly
compact 97 pages, and many, if not most, of them are dedicated to
fights, chases, brawls, fights, and more fights. There is one
obligatory explosion, but (mercifully) most of what’s here is
down-and-dirty, hand-to-hand combat rather than an indulgence in
stupid pyrotechnics. I’m not sure how Star would envision the
direction of these scenes, but I read them as more akin to those
tough, gritty thrillers of the 1970’s, instead of the overblown stuff
of the 80’s and 90’s -- and that’s a good thing. (What Peckinpah or
Friedkin could have done with this material back then!)
The third -- and greatest – strength is Star’s knack for writing
extremely sharp, dry dialogue, which alone made reading the script
worthwhile. There are wisecracks and jokes aplenty, but rather than
coming off as forced or cheap, they feel natural and very much in the
spirit of the characters speaking them.(In writing this review I was
tempted to include some excerpts here, but rather than risk giving too
much away, you’ll just have to take my word for it – there are some real gems!)
