William Goldman RIP

Absolute powerhouse of screenwriting. Marathon Man and All The President’s Men within a year! Heat! Also had to constantly deny rewriting Good Will Hunting.


ATPM is great. Think the ending could’ve been a bit more conclusive, but it’s a brooding masterpiece.

Something brilliant about those kind of 70s/80s newsroom films. Perfect late night viewing.

he was a prophet!
