Syriana: The Screenplay

Warner Bros. has released a PDF version of Stephen Gaghan’s script for Syriana, which we just saw last night. A very intense film, the story is perfectly matched with the fragmented, multi-threaded structure. In another filmmaker’s hands, this movie would have repeatedly ground to a halt for some nonsensical expositional set piece speeches.
Now I’m looking forward to seeing how Gaghan did it.
