All of the movies not on the other list, since I have not seen them. Suggestions welcome.
Stranger Than Fiction.
You better see Adaptation
@MongooseCmr I have and I love it. It's my favourite writer movie. letterboxd.com/mbarra/list/writers-in-movies-the-films-ive-seen/
How about Finding Forrester? I'm very aware of its limitations, but can't help but love it anyway. Call it a guilty pleasure, if you will.
Barton Fink is a masterwork, and Stranger than Fiction and Young Adult are good, but never watch Secret Window. Well, unless you want to drink through it. Such a daft, stupid film.
@Dave "You're the man now, dog!" Added. Thanks for the suggestion.
@Sam Haha, thanks for the tip. :)
"Bright Star" is a movie on the life of John Keats. I really enjoyed it but I love John Keats' works. The movie depicts him later in life, showing his romance with Fanny Brawne and the inspiration for much of his poetry.
Possibly Ken Russell's Gothic, and The World According to Garp.
@Stephanie Sounds right up my alley, thanks for suggesting it.
@Freeman Thanks for the reminder about Garp and the suggestion of Gothic.
Great idea for a list. My suggestions are: - Moulin Rouge (Christian is a penniless writer) - Howl - Wilde - Shakespeare in Love - Anonymous - Friends with Money (Jason Isaacs and Catharine Keener are a writing couple) - Brothers Grimm - Basic Instinct - Breakfast at Tiffany's - Iris - The Hours - Sylvia - Miss Potter (obviously, these aren't all good movies) - Becoming Jane
If journalists count: - Never Been Kissed - Almost famous - any Superman film - The Shipping News - the Sex and the City films
@Dani Thanks for your kind comment and thorough contributions. Undecided as to the journos...perhaps they deserve their own list?
