the screenplay was great. Mary harron is a master at what she does, and reading the screenplay really.made me want to see the movie. and it was so powerful to have the SCUM manifesto at the end of the screenplay. the manifesto is chilling to read after the screenplay. harron is very insightful. and knowing the backstory behind the manifesto makes it all the more interesting to read and haunting. Valerie solanas was a very troubled person. harron captured that perfectly.
