A List of Movies

A list of movies I'd like to check out after reading Billy Dolores' hipster Lodown magazine. Thought I'd share. Some are unbeknown to me, some had already been recommended by folks, some are classics and others are from well-known directors but not necessarily their most famous work. If you've seen one of these films, by all means feel free to recommend or dismiss because I have a feeling I might not like a few titles, so opinions are more than welcome.

The Line-Painter Dilemma

Screenwriter Parables by J.A.:
The Line-Painter Dilemma
A guy is hired to paint the yellow line down the middle of a country road. The first day, he paints five miles. His supervisor is impressed. The second day, he only paints two miles. His supervisor thinks, “Well, maybe he had a bad day.” But the third day, the guy only paints half a mile. The supervisor asks the guy what’s wrong — why is he getting so much less done?

“Well,” the guy says, “I have to keep walking back to the paint can.”

The screenwriting equivalent, of course, is that at the start of each day’s work, one’s instinct is to go back to page one and read-slash-revise up to where you left off. Which is a very counter-productive habit.
