101 Greatest Screenplays


The WGA sent ballots to its members asking them to choose the greatest screenplays. The results are in. It's nice to see my favourite films and screenwriters get recognised, especially those not doing 'serious drama' - which is the easiest genre to write.

I think reading and/or watching the films on the list would be both a fun and educational project. What is it about them that have endured for so long? What is it about the newer screenplays, like Charlie Kaufman's, that have attracted the attention?
