Cinematic Thoughts #6

“Whenever possible, insert a detail of realism.

What do gun ‘silencers’ really do?  How does the legal process really work in such-and-such a situation?  Is sodium pentothal a real ‘truth serum’?  If the film is of an ‘historical’ genre (like a Western), see if that one-scene character can be replaced with an actual real-life historical figure, without changing the facts about that figure.

Those ‘in the know’ will thank you for it.”
