    My favorite Pinter screenplay is “The Go-Between”, a beautiful depiction of doomed human relationships, seen on two converging levels: a young lad’s and our own.

    My favorites are “The Servant” and “The Homecoming.” Pinter’s films and play are so beautifully character driven, and each character’s arcs are frightening and honed with a very sharp pen.
