This kind of writing and acting happens way too infrequently. In general, I mean, and not just in the case of 25th Hour screenwriter David Benioff. It was mostly luck, something that just dropped into Benioff’s head. He was smart enough to grab it and use it and that was that. All creativity, good and bad, just plops into your brain out of nowhere, whenever it wants to. Ping! Here I am! Decide!
