5 more weird and wonderful movies about writers… suggested by you.
This was my five… here’s yours.
The Lost Weekend, suggested by Col.
A proper movie where the writer in question is a heavy drinker who carts his typewriter from scene to scene and chases his Muse through dodgy bedrooms and bars. Thanks for the recommendation, Col!
Sideways, also suggested by Col.
I can’t believe I forgot this one — I love this movie and basically have a crush on poor, rejected Miles. What can I say? I have a soft spot for writerly geeks.
Educating Rita, suggested by Rachel.
I can’t believe I forgot this one, either! As an English Literature student myself, this is a huge favourite movie of mine. See it, guys!
The Player, also suggested by Rachel.
I only saw this movie for the first time recently, but it is absolutely amazing. It’s really, really clever in so many ways — check out this incredible one-shot opening scene. Plus, you can play spot-the-movie-star… so many cameos in one place!
Wonder Boys, suggested by Katja.
I’ve never seen this, but I really want to — horrible trailer (shut up with the quotes already!) but it looks brilliant. Thanks, Katja!
