Hi Kevin---------

I recommend carefully separating the dry strands of film so that they will brown well. Film that is spread out like this and baked dry at around 450 degrees will become nicely crispy, with a beautiful glazed
microstructure; but it can also burn if you don't keep an eye on it. Be prepared to air out your kitchen, since cooking the base material causes the release of noxious fumes!
