One suspects that writers in Tales from the Script might have more to say about the art and the joy of creating, but Hanson seems less interested in their craft, spending much of the film allowing the writers to vent about the industry.
Tales from the Script, which is an awful title that no decent screenwriter would ever choose, is a documentary that features nearly 50 of the film industry's most notable screenwriters talking about their craft and the business it serves.
One of Tales' strongest points is made accidentally: Its huge cast of interviewees consists of one Asian speaker, one Latino, three African-Americans, and five women - one of whom pulls double-duty as a woman of color.
Interesting if not profound doc that wrangles many of the usual suspects who have played the Hollywood screenwriting game and often triumphed. Breezy fun for film buffs and aspiring writers eyeing that studio brass ring.
