You Know I Aim to Please
Also, I wanted to welcome all of you who are arriving here for the first time, due to links from other sites. There seem to be a particularly large number of you coming from Alex' page, so a special welcome to you all! I hope you will all come back for more visits!
Now, those of you who are regular readers know that I aim to please here. For example, you'll remember my long quest to meet the needs of those who came to my blog in search of information on a certain producer.
Well, I've noticed another common search bringing people here (and no it isn't all of you looking for the joke that ends with the punchline "Better Nate than lever" -- that joke is too bad and punny, and is not screenwriting-related). But in fact, this time I am able to be of assistance, without a tremendous amount of effort.
I keep getting people landing on my blog in search of the Brick screenplay. I have even had people email for it, once they found out I had read it. But the truth is, I already have posted the information these people were seeking, back in December. Still, it was a little buried in that post.
So, here it is. If you are looking for a copy of Rian Johnson's masterful screenplay for Brick, click on this link. It is on Rian's website, and is entitled the "Hey, Rian's giving the Brick script out for free!" page.
I encourage you regular readers to examine it also. I loved the script, and you'll also find some good and informative extras on there. The script has some annotations, and there is also a copy of the original novella that Rian wrote before embarking on the screenwriting process. It features new illustrations as well. You can learn a lot from this wonderful free resource. And thank Rian when you're there as well!
So that's how it works around here, see? You ask (or seek), and I'll deliver -- if I can, and if it is screenwriting-related.
