Posted on June 10, by admin Genre: Western Premise: A group of bandits use the cover of a torrential thunderstorm to rob the occupants of a small town. Warner Brothers later optioned it. It has since gone through some revisions but is still waiting to be made. Writer: S. Craig Zahler Details: Original draft This is an early draft of the script. This is not a definitive statement about the project, but rather an analysis of this unique draft as it pertains to the craft of screenwriting.

Better late than never, right? Before I get to the actual review, let me give you a little backstory on my mindset when I read it. I knew this was a highly rated Black List script, but I was far from a Western fan. Something about that era and that time is just hard to relate to for me. However, this is the very reason I wanted to read Brigands. I figured if this many people liked a Western, one of the hardest genres to sell, then there must be something special about it.

So I thought it would be interesting to look at why it still works. Brigands begins with two cowboys asking an Indian Chief to perform a fierce rain dance to bring a lethal storm down on a nearby town. This is where Brigands deviates heavily from convention. These, of course, are the people who will later get robbed. Now 60 pages of character work and no plot are akin to strapping a REAL ticking time bomb to yourself and jumping off the Sears Tower.

But what we find out is that Zahler is a master at creating characters, from their picturesque descriptions to their inner and exterior conflicts. Every single person in this script has something interesting going on. This is why we spend so much time with them. When these people do end up getting murdered, you feel it. It hits you because you know them so well. The story is anchored by three of these characters.

You have Billy Lee, the heartless gunslinger who would shoot his own child if it got him an advance on his paycheck. You have Pickett, the something by-the-books Sheriff whose only concern is keeping the peace. When the storm finally hits, Billy Lee and his gang slip in and out of the houses, leaving a trail of ruin wherever they can. The gang tortures, rapes, and murders anyone in their path.

Most of this is described in horrific detail. Someone very close to him has been killed by the bandits. The reason the script works is simple. Revenge on its own is an incredibly powerful driving force. But here, we got to know the person who was murdered. We know how much it hurts our hero. We felt that love between them. For that reason, we desperately want retaliation. What I loved about Brigands though, is it adds this second mysterious element in Abraham. We need something to balance the relentless horror of that thread, and he does it perfectly.

Not to mention, the actual revenge scene, the way Abraham takes care of one of the bad guys, is probably the most memorable revenge moment of any movie in the history of film. Yes, I just said that. So the closeness we feel to these truly unique characters combined with the unstoppable driving force of a relentless revenge story are the reasons this script has always hit me on a deep level.

It will stay in my Top 5 until it gets made. I learned from The Brigands Of Rattleborge how important it is to have a great villain. Billy Lee is so evil, so despicable in this script, that all we can think about for 2 hours is him getting his just due.
