A gripping eight-part documentary series follows Academy Award nominated filmmaker, Joe Berlinger, as he investigates a series of mysterious deaths and disappearances in the small rust-belt town of Chillicothe, Ohio.
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. Vitaly, a Russian native and creator of the film company VM Productions, took a shine to Hurley and looked over a very rough draft of the script for ' 'Notes from the New World'. They visited Sumin's hometown of St. Petersburg to get a better ...Written by
A mix of mystery, emotions, obstacles, shocking revelations and a lot more is the base of "The missing Screenwriter". A summary would never cover it all, just watch it!
When you have a brilliant, original idea and don't turn it into something real, other people cannot enjoy the beauty of that idea and its potential positive consequences. But when you have a brilliant, original idea and turn it into a movie, and the movie exceeds the idea itself...Well, you get "The Missing Screenwriter". I loved the story, I loved the way it's been developed and I loved the surprising, dynamic structure of it. Unusual plot, unusual outcomes, unusual characters for a surprising, awesome movie that won't disappoint you, but will impress you and lead you to understand that complex is not always a synonym of difficult: this movie is complex because it has so much in it, but at the same time it is so easy to enjoy.
