Reviews

Jason Lee's exhaustive new study provides an essential tool for students and researchers interested in the creation and critique of modern screenwriting practices. The Psychology of Screenwriting blends major psychological, philosophical and industry-based perspectives alongside a fascinating array of case-studies, which range from contemporary Hollywood blockbusters, European art cinema classics and short film renditions, to modern splatter epics, rock opera spectaculars, British sitcom traditions and beyond. * Xavier Mendik, Principal Lecturer, Brighton University, UK and director of the Cine-Excess International Film Festival *
