The 2012 Cinema Touch Awards - ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY


by
Julien Faddoul

 
5. Looper – Rian Johnson

For an assured, dynamic thriller. It is that rare screenplay that contains surprises throughout, right up until the final scene.


 

4. The Master – Paul Thomas Anderson

For a masterful (ha!) dissection of the pet-owner/animal-human relationship. That it works as an entanglement of cult is a bonus.



 
3. Holy Motors – Leos Carax

For writing a tragicomedy that, in all of the oddness that characterizes the film, explores the nature of infatuation and dignity.
 


2. Amour – Michael Haneke
                             
For being able to concoct visual and emotional poetry out of the seemingly undistinguished inadequacies of life. All our lives.



1. The Color Wheel – Carlen Altman, Alex Ross Perry

For removing every screenwriting rule in the book (why does that always seems to work?) and displaying a dauntless, magnificent artifact of love, hate and pretty much everything else.. If there is any credibility, this is what should be taught in writing class.



Runner Up: Moonrise Kingdom – Wes Anderson, Roman Coppola
