This screenplay delves into Indian mythology,and demonic possession of the soul.Concept is very good,but presented in a somewhat moderate fashion,for all it's twist,and turns,and seems to miss the mark by a narrow margin.Characters are mostly well put together,"Pat" seems a little thin,some later introductions not relevant to story, "Native Girls" in bar, case in point.Dialogue is well written,concise and,believable for it's timespan.Story moves at good pace,by use of "Flashbacks" but suffers when it leaves the manhunt in the wilderness,and returns to Edmonton, the notebook can be confusing, courtroom needs infusion of drama,to equal manhunt. Structure works for plot.Overall a very good piece of writing, liked the "Jack/Tommy" scene with gun,but for some reason it starts to flounder in Act 3,and really doesn't do justice to what has gone before,needs a darker conclusion to really pull it off.

Story should move at a faster pace, the first ten pages are... read

    This screenplay tells the story, of wheeling and dealing within the Catholic Church, and all points of the compass. Concept,is quite good, but the presentation muddies the waters between who's doing what,and why. Characters, range from fair to middleing, some could be cut, others need more development. Dialogue, is quite well written, but in places suffers from overstatement,... read

    An interesting tale, only to be found in certain parts of the Emerald Isle. The concept is a good one, but allows itself to get bogged down with irrevelant points in the plot. Characters, portray the Irish flavour quite well, and believable. However a little more defining is called for. Dialogue, at times is good but wanders around on others. Story, moves along at a fairly... read
