All you film buffs out there,
working in a literature dept., I guess my film experience is not as
profound and far-reaching as yours. So, two requests:
 
1) Does anybody know significant films on writing for the screen (other
than the Coens' 'Barton Fink' or Altman's 'The Player' which come to my mind
 first
 
2) Can anybody think of films which center around TV, as in
Lumet/Chayefsky Network or Nichols' Kosinski adapt. 'Being There'?
 
Is my imprssion correct that TV is not as hot an issue in film as it
used to be in the late seventies or early eighties?
Thanks,
Eckart
