Robert Hurley, 27, a Culver City native and one time computer engineer, has not been heard from since late February, after many attempts to contact him via phone calls, e-mails, and visits to his home in Los Angeles. The latest film based on his screenplay, 'Notes from the New World', tells a modern day version of Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky's 'Notes from the Underground', complete with Russian mafia gangsters and a dangerous call girl, and evidence suggests Hurley's disappearance is due to real life characters who inspired the script. Abandoning his job at Teletech Technology, Hurley hooked up with Vitaly Sumin, a fellow screenwriter from New Playwrights Foundation after a chance meeting and Hurley went back to his first love: writing.

Awesome!

I had the opportunity to watch The Missing Screenwriter (private screening) , and I was really impressed. All the elements used helped to build an captivating story. The surprise was one of the elements that helped to make this story so interesting and fascinating. While watching, I had no idea what would happen next. It is exactly this fact that makes a production of a movie successful. After all, people want to see something new, different. Again, the surprise is an element that makes all the difference in this story. Besides it, I found it really fun. I also could observe the behavior of the characters. It is a well developed story, the mystery is also an important element of the story. It makes us reflect about our own imagination. After all, in our routine we see people speculating a lot, and we wonder where begins the truth and where it becomes only a mirror of our own fears. It is really worthy watching!
