Hodnoticí metody a kritéria



When trying to contribute to the state of the art of a theory of screenwriting, we realise the little we have advanced since Pasolini's essay in 1965. 

Comparing writing for film with writing for other arts such as music and theatre can be of some use. 

Basically, there are two ways of conceiving screenwriting. One is as a transcription of the chaos, of the phantoms that have to be shed in verbal language in order to start a production. Ingmar Bergman, for instance, states he starts with something very vague, “mood-like”, a “brightly colored thread sticking out of the dark sack of the unconcious”.  But we can also understand screenwriting as anticipation, aufhebung, ghost of what is to come but is still suspended in words and will die once the film is produced (a cocoon, says Carrière).
