I am starting to study some movies for the current feature film I am writing. There are quite a lot I plan to look into, and have only started to study a few of those, but I have already learned a ton.
One of them is Training Day.
I like this movie and think it can be a good case study. One reason is that it is efficient in terms of storytelling. We quickly learn who is who, who wants what, what the conflicts are, and what is at stake. Another reason is that it is to the point, it knows what it wants to say and does not loose time or energy doing it.
You can view the various bookmarks I have created and if you happen to have the movie, you can copy them in your own project.
