The 2014 Cinema Touch Awards - ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

by
Julien Faddoul



5. Love is Strange – Ira Sachs, Mauricio Zacharias
For working, for me, as an antidote to so many homosexual characters in cinema that wallow in self-pity in order to stroke ignorant audiences. Love is Strange simply presumes.




4. The Grand Budapest Hotel – Wes Anderson
For an obituary in serial form with the last installment missing; snowballing for 100 minutes to a sad and beautiful apogee.






3. Starred Up – Jonathan Asser
For impeccably weaving the grand illusion of virtue in an environment that deconstructs men to their core depravity.







2. Listen Up Philip – Alex Ross Perry
For burrowing into the subconscious like transient memories.







1. The Immigrant – James Gray, Richard Menello
For a staggeringly bleak story of humanity's aborted commitments and the fruitless ambition to make things right.







Runner Up: Two Days, One NightJean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne
