Screenwriter Profile: Charlie Kaufman

 

The Writer:

Charlie Kaufman is one of my screenwriting heroes. People either hate his movies or love them, and I fall into the latter category. His stories and style exhibit a rare genius not often seen in big screen cinema. He’s one of the few writers who gets to break all the rules — something you’re only allowed to do if you’re a genius. Some of his most well known films include Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich, and Adaptation. He was nominated for an Oscar for all three and won for Eternal Sunshine.

Read this great interview with Charlie or watch this wonderful Master Class for more about his writing.
