    Re: Uses and abuses of Aristotle's Poetics in screenwriting how-to books

    Thanks for the link.

    The strained metaphor at the beginning of this essay sapped my expectation of enjoyment and took me out of it.

    I am only moved to say that because I browsed the other essays on the site and found she actually rewrote, badly, a scene from THE IDES OF MARCH to make a point about her banal concept of dialogue-as-doing. http://www.screentakes.com/the-scree...ides-of-march/

    Yeah, everyone has ****ing notes.

    I'm surprised how grumpy this made me. /:
