Reader Question: “What about screenplay page count?”

As a reader (for Sundance), I didn’t always know if you “cheated” the page count, but the negative effect was still there when I felt like I’d been reading for ages and not getting through much of your content. I frequently chalked that up to you not having a good sense of pacing and the script dragging. I haven’t seen a movie in ages (in fact I can’t think of any right now, including Wonder Woman, which I loved) that was over two hours that wouldn’t have been made better with a few choice cuts.
