Script Evauation par Praxis

The "money quote;" the opening paragraph of the analysis of the screenplay Warren and I wrote called Uncle Gus' Monkey.
"There is a lot to like, and even love, in Uncle Gus’ Monkey. There is a great energy to the characterizations, and the dialogue is very strong – particularly the voice over dialogue, which most of the time offers charming, sarcastic comments that play in contrast with the action played out in the stage direction. ... Furthermore, I think of much of the screenplay as ‘vignettes’ that, when examined by themselves, are quite entertaining and funny. This comedic tone is consistent, and plays well against the darker moments of the piece. The fact that this is also a true, untold story about two prominent Canadian theatre figures also adds to the appeal of the screenplay."
