Pulp Fiction ***

*** Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino & Roger Avary

I agree with Anton. The emperor has no clothes. Don't get me wrong. I enojyed Pulp Fiction, for the most part. But if I brought this script to any critique group I've ever seen or to any script consultants I've talked to, they would tear it to shreds. Too much talking, huge chunks of dialog. Confusing timeline. Strange structure.

But a great story told pretty well. The moral of this story is, if you want to do something unconventional, you better have the resources to film it yourself. And hope you're truly genius and not just a crackpot.
