Default Absolute fastest Growing hedge plant for tall privacy screen????

I'm looking to make a privacy screen at least 10-15 ft or taller. I
need a plant that has leaves all year (evergreen) and will grow as tall
and thick as possible in the shortest amount of time. Also, and this
is important, it needs to be able to do so in shady conditions.

I've experimented with giant thuja, several bamboos, and lorrell. Any
better suggestions?



I was gonna say bamboo, but you already mentioned that.

How about kudzu? You'll have to provide some support for it -- at least
initially.
