The "Perils of Screenwriting"
By chance I got hooked on Seraphic Secret's ongoing series about his research for a prison movie, a women's prison.
It's beautifully written, but the material is frightening. The women are powerful con artists. He's always wondering how much truth is in their stories, or are they just playing him as a fool.
There are haunting similarities to politicians. The best are great actors. We never really know how seriously to take their words....
