Agreed. I mean, Adaptation pretty much nails the neurotic nature of the process. Finding Forester speaks in platitudes, but most of what it says about writing is spot-on, if pretty basic. Barton Fink has a few great writing insights amid the industry in-jokes and stuff. But yeah, it's just not a medium to get it across very well.
