WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Downstairs bookcrossing meeting.
Caught at Boston Bookcrossing Jan. 2019 Meet-Up. To be read.
Wasn't sure a script like this would be readable -- and I have seen the film. But I have to say that it was a very fast and interesting read. The intro says the author was also trying to do a modern update of 50's/early 60's hard boiled pulp fiction/hence the title. I wasn't aware of that before. Somewhat spoiler here -- the time line moves a couple of times around Vincent Vega character so you don't really know if he was killed or not with the boxer, or actually went to the coffee shop, etc. And is my only issue w/ narrative & continuity both with the film and script. Other note--Tarantino was already known in Hollywood, for writing Reservoir Dogs and True Romance -- well known enough to include tech. aspects like camera angles and shots -- usually screen writers are warned against doing that kind of specific direction (vague suggestions as part of setting a scene are okay/if limited) -- in general those calls about camera moves/angles -- are/it's to be left up to the director after the script is sold, etc.
