But Kurosawa gets me. He knows what I'm up to:
[T]he best scripts have very few explanatory passages. Adding explanation to the descriptive passages of a screenplay is the most dangerous trap you can fall into. It’s easy to explain the psychological state of a character at a particular moment, but it’s very difficult to describe it through the delicate nuances of action and dialogue. Yet it is not impossible. A great deal about this can be learned from the study of the great plays, and I believe the “hard-boiled” detective novels can also be very instructive.Yes! I can read a novel for its interesting story, and still play the artsy fartsy card!! Kurosawa said so!
I'll catch y'all later. I'm gonna go catch the Orient Express.
