Jan Wahl Movie Review: Three Amazing Screenplays
(CBS SF) – What do Woody Allen, Diablo Cody and Christopher Hampton have in common? Three amazing screenplays, says KCBS Entertainment Reporter Jan Wahl: “Midnight in Paris,” “Young Adult,” and “A Dangerous Method.”
Jan calls it a pity that more people aren’t seeing “A Dangerous Method,” which is a brilliant film about Freud and Jung’s first time employing their method of psychotherapy. She says it’s a screenplay that was written with fire and passion.
Cody’s “Young Adult” once again gives us a sharp and edgy film, and Allen comes back to all of his fans in “Midnight in Paris,” with a screenplay that beautifully illustrates other times and colorful characters, giving us the gift of appreciating the present.
Allen is the only one of the three to receive a Golden Globe nomination for screenplay, but we can hope Oscar doesn’t overlook the others. The Globes, once unimportant and even laughable, is now a highly publicized and much watched show.
