Finished the first draft of this essay for the script review. Very satisfying - I finished articulating to myself the problem I saw with the movie. It was one of those stories where the guy has a good comfortable but pretty boring life. He needs excitement.
What I figured out was that the story was just going to be simple and predictable if you made his comfortable life negative and 'getting excitement back' positive. Things got mixed up in interesting way when I started considering how to represent his current life as a positive and - even better and easier to dramatise – how to represent getting excitement back as NEGATIVE.
So a polish on that and send it off and it should be done.
