Screenplays to Read . . .
When You're Not Writing
'Part of the fun is trying to guess what the ending might be. The challenge was to let the audience know in a way that wouldn't upset them that there wasn't going to be an ending. To switch off the expectation. . . . To mesmerize the audience, I had to experiment with rhythm. Too slow and the film would become indulgent. You would see the wheels turning.'
-- Peter Weir
