Today in one of my classes we had to vote on which film we are going to watch as a part of our screenwriting section. We were given 5 choices and were told to rank them. I was surprised with what some people put as their top choice. Just curious what everyone here would have voted for.

The five were:
1. American Beauty
2. In the Line of Fire
3. Fatal Attraction
4. Thelma and Louise
5. Witness

Those are s**t choices. If I had a choice of a script to analyze (and I'll keep it in the neo-noir genre) I would choose Robert Towne's Chinatown, Leigh Brackett's The Long Goodbye, or maybe Walker's Seven.

My rank of these stinkers:
1. Witness
2. In the Line of Fire
3. Fatal Attraction (would only be worth doing if you consider the altered ending)
4. American Beauty
5. Thelma and Louise (a total incoherent mess! What's the point of analyzing this? To see what went wrong?)

Fatal Attraction (the only among these that isn't study-worthy, except maybe as the anatomy of a failed concept)
