  • getting a brain blast for a new screenplay while listening to abba in the car, pulling out a notebook for it and scribbling my ideas down, and then respectfully putting it aside instead of diving into writing it bc i love and cherish my current script so much, i'll give it all the time it deserves, and then if i still love my new idea by the time draft 1 is finished only then will i explore it. that's called Character Development babey. growing as a writer is so sexy

thoughts

  • may i just say steven price's score for fury,, masterpiece. absolute masterpiece! the like,, teutonic chant? evoking the image of the "machine" of the ss, the use of percussive metals to evoke the ACTUAL machine-driven, mechanized warfare of wwii, esp. the fact that the film. is literally about an armored division. the grittiness,, the feeling as though you're scrabbling forward trying to gain a foothold,, you can FEEL the desperation of the third reich, it's april 1945 and the allies are literally IN germany tearing the place apart. incredible. THE FINAL piece. absolutely soars as though there were some sort of victory gained? it's like the musical embodiment of a pyrrhic victory. i'm gonna pass out i suddenly miss film scoring more than anything
  • hear me out universe please just. cast daniel brühl as a cowboy. p please. HE CAN DITCH THE GERMAN ACCENT I SWEAR

crushes

quotes

  • i was put on earth to face the blank page!
    • quentin tarantino on screenwriting
  • ❝ as a writer, i demand the right to write any character in the world that i want to write. i demand the right to be them, i demand the right to think them and i demand the right to tell the truth as i see they are. ❞ — quentin tarantino on screenwriting
  • ❝ he is a raw male force, driving forward; toward what, one cannot tell. then one looks closer and sees the inevitable. the clock spring cannot be wound continually tighter. as the earth moves toward the sun, travis bickle moves toward violence.
