Although Downfall seems like a good story line, it seems a little copy cat from all those other movies made from 9-11. I have noticed quite a few mistakes throughout the script that needs to be changed. To many to post here but a reread by the writer would do this screenplay a world of good. Using profanity in dialog is accepted but to use it in ACTIONS - such as "ASS" on Pg. 8 should be changed to a more non-profanity word such as butt or bottom. Allot of the ACTION is a little to detailed and could be rewritten. Like they always say, LESS IS MORE. Such as describing the sounds of the watersprinklers. That should be left up to the sounds department when making this script into film. You also included numerous times in ACTION, some questions such as: David looks around fast and is trying to locate the source
of the sound. The sound becomes a bit louder, but is still
just as fast. RAT-A-TAT-A-TAT... is that gunfire? You used the word "CONTINUOUS" in quite a few of the SCENE HEADINGS when it wasn't needed.
This plot would have been better during pre-9-11 time.. Sorry if that sounds a little off key but I feel it would be hard to sell this taking place in a city that has already been attacked by terrorists.

Pg. 1 - Many of the enclosures contain sheep, cows, horses, and "not a few goats."... read
A review of Eurekaville (2nd draft)by shadesdown2001 on 10/30/2007The scene changes are very confusing. Right from the beginning, when Helen speaks about a scene then the scene changes to what she just spoke of repetitively causes the reader to lost track. ( HELEN Exterior. Fire escape of Rose’s apartment -dusk. As she does so, the scene appears in black and white film footage, starring CHARLES AND BETTY CHASE as RICHARD and ROSE. EXT... read
A review of VELVET GLOVES_TSby shadesdown2001 on 10/29/2007Besides that there were a few places in the script that seemed out of place or needless, I really liked this script. It really took on the form as I was reading it as though I was watching a movie and not reading. I liked the Mali character. This entire script took on more than one scenerio. The scene descriptions especially during the fight scenes were excellent. I liked the... read
