Tom Stoppard may have added many superb Shakespearean in-jokes such as Shakespeare repeatedly practising his signature and a water-taxi driver saying that he had once had Christopher Marlowe in the back of his boat , but it was the sheer genius of the story — utterly inauthentic as it may have been — that was the basis of a great screenplay.

This is an early example of a classic screen adaptation of a classic novel, in this case arguably the greatest novel written about WWI, and certainly the greatest German novel. Bertolucci brilliantly and insidiously shows how an apparently ordinary man can be seduced by an appalling ideology, simply because he is so desperate to comply with the supposed norms of society after being abused as a child.

In When Harry Met Sally… the obstacle is their own desire to preserve their friendship, even at the expense of something greater i. And of course, there is the marvelous fake orgasm scene — much-imitated, never-bettered — which educated a generation of men in the realities of female sexual duplicity.

The Battle of Algiers is a film and script that becomes ever more prescient, seemingly anticipating the great battle of the 21st century, between secularism and fundamentalism, through a forensic examination of the Algerian war of independence. It is both whimsical and whip-smart, an unusual combination that perhaps only the movies, of all art forms, can pull off. Of all the narrative art forms, it is cinema that can do this most successfully, because cinema itself is a form of time travel, allowing us on screen and then in our own imagination to replay the past endlessly and then imagine a multiplicity of possible futures.

Something else that cinema does more successfully than any other art forms is to show the true nature of surveillance: someone watching someone else, even as we, the audience, watch them.

The Lives Of Others is the exemplar of this cinematic truth, showing how an ideologically devoted, but essentially lonely Stasi agent becomes inextricably involved in the life of the dissident playwright he is spying on, in the end intervening to save him at the expense of his own career and effectively his own life.

Hunsecker a name that surely echoes the all-seeing optician, T. Based on a fairy tale, The Red Shoes is itself the ultimate cinematic fairy tale, as a ballerina is driven to self-destruction by becoming the focal point of a love triangle between her mentor and the young composer he hires. It could only be a true story, or at least based on a true story.

And at the end, tragically and pathetically, a gun does go off…. It steals a narrative trick from Sunset Boulevard , but in every other respect American Beauty is a true original.

Tragically, even as he pulls himself back from the brink, a disastrous-but-believable chain of events leads to his demise. It is not the cascade of roses, but the dancing plastic bag that is the defining image of a script and film that celebrate the often unnoticed magic of everyday life.

But Sideways is the best by far, and arguably the best screenplay of the 21st century so far. It is familiar territory for many stories, including many movies, but Payne specialises in making the familiar wonderfully unfamiliar. For example, there are not many American movies where you see the characters having to walk indeed, stumble home late at night along a highway, because they are stuck in the middle of nowhere and too drunk to drive.

A personal story of true-life tragedy and movie-loving triumph inspired this choice. Suddenly, all or at least the awful millennium eve that I had endured was forgotten and forgiven… Chungking Express may only be half a great screenplay and movie the first story is merely GNG — good, not great , but it was still more than enough to make me believe again in the possibilities of life, cinema and the new century ahead.

Kind Hearts and Coronets may be the most cynical script ever written, taking us via voiceover into the mind of Louis Mazzini, who sets about killing off his distant aristocratic relatives so that he can in his own mind, rightfully claim the family fortune his mother had forfeited by marrying an Italian opera singer.

And the final twist is one of the all-time greats, coming at the end of a veritable corkscrew of earlier twists…. Next week is Part II — The Top 20, and if some of the above seem contentious choices especially the more personal ones , I am confident that the screenplays I will examine next week are unarguably extraordinary , as each one of them rewrote the art of screenwriting.

Duplicity: Tony Gilroy interview

Nearby hover her makeup man and bodyguard, various assistant directors, gaffers, and carpenters, and members of the Italian crew. A black tarpaulin blocks the view of onlookers and the paparazzi. Roberts begins walking down the street, and the cameraman, using a handheld steadicam, precedes her in a backward crab-walk. On cue, three children race up the alley past her, kicking a soccer ball. Roberts looks over her shoulder and continues until she is off camera. Moments later, Owen begins to walk fast; he breaks into a trot, runs past the children, decelerates, runs again.
