The Nines (August, 2007)

What starts out as a downright loopy and unfocused analogy for stardom gradually turns into a groovy head-trip obsessed with guilt and creation. The Nines might take its “writer as god” mentality a bit too far, but John August’s script stays true to the characters’ roots, never losing its edge when lambasting Hollywood’s contradictory approach to art and business. Sporting a savvy movie insider sensibility, The Nines seems a fitting payback for screenwriters feeling unappreciated these days.
