Formulas for hit films

Roger Ebert called Pulp Fiction “the most influential” movie of the 1990s, “so well-written in a scruffy, fanzine way that you want to rub noses in it—the noses of those zombie writers who take ‘screenwriting’ classes that teach them the formulas for ‘hit films.’ ”

Ouch!

Taken from: 

Vanity Fair, Cinema Tarantino: The Making of Pulp Fiction.

This is a long article, but worth the time if you're interested in the history of Quentin Tarantino or the making of Pulp Fiction. It has lots of odd little cinematic and screenwriting tidbits.

This is a mammoth essay, it's a huge report on the inside story of making a movie. The writer went to an enormous amount of research, traveling to interview people. He seems to be very fair in the way he reports what people said. It's a very exciting read. Fascinating, and shows how much of movie making is working relationships.
