"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Blueprints: "Ingrid Goes West"

In the latest installment of our screenplay column,Jorgetakes a look at the tricky task of making a phone screen visually engaging.

As technology becomes more efficient and finds new ways to make our lives easier,it's making the job of screenwriting more difficult.It's now nearly impossible tonotbe able to reach a person insomeway (once a common source of screen conflict) and,worse for the visual montony,most of our day-to-day activities include staring at some kind of screen.

Ingrid Goes Westdidn't just incorporate how we relate to technology today,but made it its central theme.Let's look at the underrated gem to see how the use of technology is captured in its pages,and how the writers made it as emotionally thrilling as any action movie car chase...

Review: "Ingrid Goes West"

By Spencer Coile

Following the death of her mother,Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) is in a rut.With no one to turn to,she scrolls through Instagram in hopes of finding her ideal friend.She soon finds Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen),a California-based social media influencer -- and Ingrid's latest muse.Captivated by Taylor's seemingly glamorous life,Ingrid packs up her life in Pennsylvania and heads to the sunny West Coast,in hopes of befriending Taylor and catching a glimmer of social media stardom.

Written and directed by Matt Spicer,Ingrid Goes Westis the latest in a long line of films that demonstrate the pervasiveness of technology and the influence social media has on our lives.If you find yoursevles rolling your eyes at that comment,fear not.Ingridis far more interested in exploring our relationship with the likes of Instagram,Twitter,Snapchat,etc.,rather than merely demonizing its usage.Oh,and it is hilarious.

Review: Wind River

by Lynn Lee

It should come as no surprise that writer-director Taylor Sheridan,currently hot in Hollywood after his Oscar screenplay nomination forHell or High Water,is an actual,bona fide cowboy.Perhaps that's why his work feels like such a throwback—to an era in which quietly capable men,silently toting unspoken burdens,took on the joyless task of meting out frontier justice.At the same time,he's shown a canny gift for placing such old-school archetypes in a distinctly modern,of-this-moment social and political context,making their struggles feel unexpectedly timely or,rather,timeless.That gift is on ample display in his new film,Wind River,which is now in wide release after nabbing the best directing prize in the Un Certain Regard categoryat Cannes earlier this year.

Set on a remote,wintry Indian reservation in Montana,the film marks the third installment in a loose trilogy of Westerns penned by Sheridan (the first two beingSicarioandHell or High Water),thoughWind Riveris the first one he directed...

Review: Avengers 3 aka "Captain America: Civil War"

This review was originally published in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad.It is reprinted here in a slightly expanded version.

Captain America and his man,the Winter Soldier

Poor Captain America.You know how it is.You're frozen in a block of ice and when you wake up several decades later the world has gottensocomplicated!Everyone you loved is dead except your 96 year old girlfriend with Alzheimers (Agent Peggy Carter) and your brainwashed homicidal boyfriend (Bucky/The Winter Soldier) who is totally ghosting you.

New friends are plentiful but also trouble.Either they have two faces (Black Widow/Agent 13) or they're constantly vanishing for personal reasons (Thor/Hulk/Hawkeye) so you totally can't rely on them.
