 www.haroldpinter.org - The Proust Screenplay   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
We read The Proust Screenplay with all kinds of things in our mind: Proust, Pinter's reading of Proust; the problem of abridgment, the problem of dramatization, the problem of visualization; the film which might have been made from this script; the script itself as a literary work, words on the page.
Throughout the screenplay a complex of time planes is dexterously manipulated.
The changes are almost always immediately clear, but even when a change is briefly ambiguous, this contributes to the paramount effect: of being suspended in a magical vessel full of time.

 Neil Gaiman A Screenplay Reviewed By Rick Kleffel
Between the content of the screenplay itself, Gaiman's short introduction and our own knowledge of what's happened in the intervening years, Gaiman achieves more with the current publication of his screenplay than the screenplay itself.
If you think that the screenplay format and style is by definition anonymous, you might be in general correct.
As a reader, the movie I manufactured for myself reading 'A Screenplay' was not the movie that Gaiman's written, but rather the documentary about Gaiman writing the screenplay, expressed in the form of the screenplay itself.

Before reading this book I had a doubt about what role a director plays in a screenplay written by some other writer, I thought they are mere executers of what is written in the paper.

About the chapters in the book, in the very first chapter he simply and clearly makes us understand what is a screenplay and how a line in a story is transformed to a line in screenplay.
