Re: "Movie Narrative Charts" Discussion

the two movies where the joke really lies (Angry Men and Prime) weren't based on a book (or where they?!!). Primer's an original screenplay, but 12 Angry Men was written first as a teleplay. It would be neat if the 12 Angry Men one took into account the bathroom and McArdle and Davis exchanging nam...

Then again, the way I usually use it is the more active meaning...
