A Story of A Storyteller

Script Doctor Robert McKee is a legend. Not just in Hollywood. But also in his own mind.

Author of STORY, the definitive volume on the principles and craft of screenwriting, he is authoritative in his encyclopedic insights about cinema — and autocratic in his teaching style.

A tour de force. Or as they say in Variety: “Boffo.”
