Screenwriting : American Fiction... by Curt Samlaska

American Fiction...

I don't know how many of you have seen American Fiction, but I absolutely love this film. Cord Jefferson won an Academy Award for the best screenplay adaptation this year. He also is a first time director. It is such a smart, witty, amazingly scripted work. I took my son to see it because I knew it was going to be fantastic. You should all see it...I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I did. Congratulations Cord Jefferson for your amazing work!!!

Curt Samlaska I just spotted it in Amazon Prime, so I put it in my watchlist. :)

Robin Gregory

Gotta see it. Thank you for the reminder, Curt Samlaska. It sounds like I could learn a lot from the script.

Tucker Teague

I started reading the screenplay and was immediately impressed by how well written it is. Just absolutely perfect imho.

E Langley

A favorite from last year. Great fun!

Saw recently, enjoyed 75%, the last 25-30 mins felt rushed & anti-climatic; also switch & bait marketing romance- the trailer suggests the two headline

actors will hook up. All the white characters were cartoonish. I got lost in the timeline. Seems plot condensed months into two-weeks. For example it looked like he wrote an entire book in one night, then published, then movie deal next day.

Curt Samlaska have some points Dan, I never even considered those aspects. I just loved the whole concept and how well written it was. It was a lot of fun for me, and the cartoonish characters were exactly the point. I heard somewhere that the inspiration for the script came from a piece of work he did for a producer. The producer wrote back to him that he liked what he did, but asked him if he could "make it blacker." Ah, the times we live in...

I'm looking forward to watching "American Fiction" and reading the script, Curt Samlaska. I saw part of the trailer a little while back, so I'm gonna go into the movie and script knowing as little as possible, which I like.

I agree with Dan MaxXx . It's a very good film/screenplay but it isn't brilliant/excellent
