The Garden of Words

It starts with a mark on a page. Ends with a closing credit. In between are words made into magic, poetry in motion, ideas brought to life on a silver screen. And sometimes, the storytellers come with them. This showdown celebrates writers—those who wrestle with angels and talk with gods, who open up the whole wide world and leave us spellbound—by inviting you to go Wilde and outline your ten favorite films featuring scribes as major characters. Fictional or true-life, screenwriters, novelists, dead poets—let them all talk. It’s never too late to strike a match and ignite the fire within.

See here. I'm factoring in the degree to which the movie is about writing to the ranking; otherwise, for example, La Notte would be higher.
