    Was there supposed to be a link? Or a time?

    I did enjoy your Inglourious Basterds analysis. Would have liked to comment along with it, but I was lagging behind on reading the screenplay. (I don’t know if you’re in the habit of buying published screenplays, but his are just as fun to read as his films are to watch.)

    The only other nominated screenplay that I’ve picked up in book form is A Serious Man. I was wondering whether you were planning on giving that the Alcott Treatment.

      I plan to analyze it when it comes out on DVD, to give folks a chance to see it. I don’t want to spoil it inordinately.

        I understand. I was under the impression that it came out this week, though.

        i was pretty shocked by all the people commenting on these entries having not seen the movie. i believe i’ve commented on some of your analyses before without having seen the movies, but inglorious bastards… reading plot details of a movie so heavy on suspense, tension, and surprise, one’s really doing oneself a disservice. how does my writing get this tone? it’s like i’m a grandmother in an old british-y live action disney movie like the happiest millionaire. did philosophy do this to me??

        but yeah, spoiling basterds for oneself has to really suck. i was floored by that movie when i first saw it (and the next day when i saw it again, to be fair).

          I never want to spoil a movie for someone who hasn’t seen it. For Basterds, I didn’t put “spoiler alert” tags on the break because I figured anyone who’d submit to the burden of reading my turgid analysis would already be familiar with the movie.

          On the other hand, I often read comments like “I didn’t see Inglourious Basterds because Tarantino is a stupid idiot who makes terrible movies,” which makes me think, well, okay, fair enough.

    Tarantino is beginning to sound and look disturbingly like Barney Frank.
