A dissection of Back to the Future, a film with a “nearly perfect screenplay”

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 02, 2016

From Jack’s Movie Reviews, an examination of the first Back to the Future movie, its stellar screenplay, and the high level of storytelling achieved by the filmmakers. As H. Perry Horton says:

Too often the BTTF trilogy is dismissed as mere popcorn escapism, but in reality it’s one of the smartest franchises of the last half-century and deserves to be regarded with a more analytical eye.

Totally planning on watching it this weekend with the kids…I don’t think they’ve seen it yet.
