    Citizen Kane


                   The Passion of Screenwriting. 
                     Written by Blake Patterson. 

                     Chapter One: Introduction

        “If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed,” stated by director Stanley Kubrick. At the beginning of cinema, screenwriters could only project ideas through movement. The lack of sound at the time was a barrier to be deal with. Once sound…

  • Nashville



    Living in Altman’s America...
    Starring: Ned Beatty. Ronee Blakley. Keith Carradine.
    Directed by Robert Altman.
    By Blake Patterson.

       After the Paramount logo appears with a black-and-white font, Robert Altman’s Nashville indicates three opening credits: ABC Entertainment, a Jerry Weintraub production, and a Robert Altman film. The editing of these credits was treated as a reflection upon the lower-left surface.

The one flaw I have about the film is its ending because it completely goes against the message about Jesse and his criminal behavior. Ted Demme once said the original ending was supposed to display the notion of crime was a negative pathway, but the test audiences hated the conclusion. Test audiences suck! The Ref is raunchy, biting humor with intelligence.

    The Woman in the Window

    The Woman in the Window was a movie I barely even knew about until I watched it today. This is the latest Joe Wright film where the director is creating a modern Rear Window with the neat, stylish tricks of David Fincher. Visually speaking, the movie is impressive to a degree, but The Woman in the Window is devoid of flair and significance. In the past, my experience with Wright’s work has not been too resonant; I wrote a positive…
