    I've tried to construct my thoughts and responses as questions as I feel this is more helpful to the screenwriter than flat comments. I should say also that this is not the type of film I usually go to see. It doesn't mean that I can't enjoy films of this ilk, if they are cleverly crafted, fresh, and well-written. But please remember that I'm not necessarily your 'target audience'... read

    I've tried to phrase these comments as questions, as I think it's incredibly arrogant for another writer to tell you what to do. Nobody knows anything (thanks Mr Goldman) and if, having asked yourself these questions, you disagree, good for you! First some general ones. I really admire the premise, and believe me that's pretty rare. It feels fresh and almost entirely original... read

    Jamie,

    As for BOGLAND, you're welcome. It was a pleasure to read and review.

    I still chuckle over Sammy's limerick during a horrible event. I think it was with Peter if my memory serves me right.

    It seems that you really have your head on straight and going in the right direction to further your career.

    Best of luck!

    Hi Jamie - Thanks much for your very constructive comments on The Committee. And regarding Molly, I hadn't even thought of the "exploitative" aspect. That's far from where I had intended to go. Maybe now she's doing it for a class project or she's gonna get a couple of good job offers for her work with Wyatt. And I'll try to think like Aaron Sorkin, but the one thing I learned after watching West Wing is there aint no way I'm ever gonna be able to write like that!!

    Thanks again.

    Jamie,

    Call them artistic differences. haha But, regardless, I meant no harm in my review. You have obviously worked hard in the industry, and I respect that. I hope that I can face this rugged path with half the pertinacity that you have. Thank you for the bit of appreciation. Good luck on this and all other future ventures.

    Take care,

    SG


    Hi Steve. I think my original comment may have come across wrong. I wasn't in the slightest bit offended / upset / riled by anything you said and I do hope that's clear. I was - and am - extremely grateful for your feedback. And yes, it's just minor (very minor) artistic differences I was referring to, but on the whole I am in total agreement with you. Thanks again and good luck! Jamie
