Script Analysis of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

This month's Blacklist Script Analysis of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent dives deep into narrative brilliance. Almost impossible to get through without a few breaks to catch your breath from laughing, this homage to Nicholas Cage entertains while also delivering a meaningful and important message. While we leave the analysis of laughs to better minds, this masterclass in Dramatica theory identifies why the script connects on such a deeply emotional level--and explains why the script moved out of speculation and into reality (currently in production and slated for a March 2021 release).
