Field examines four groundbreaking contemporary classics "Thelma and Louise," "Terminator 2: Judgement Day," "The Silence of the Lambs," and "Dances with Wolves" to show how a great script is written. This book includes a frame-by-frame analysis, as well as in-depth interviews with the four screenwriters.
"This is one of the very best books I have read on movies or screenplays. Syd writes both with passion and an astute understanding for me personally–I only wish he'd written his chapter on 'Thelma and Louise' before I started work on it because it would have made my contribution a lot better. But then, by reading Syd's book I get the chance to carry some of the clarity he brings to a project forward into my future work."–Hans Zimmer, film composer, "Thelma and Louise"
