Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
First I think it's really boring, since metafiction needs comedy's manic energy to engage. Then Kaufman considers using fake plot devices, and I hope he does. Then he does, and the characters turn into cartoons, and the movie gets worse, because it lost its authenticity. Then I realize it: Kaufman is saying that Hollywood screenwriting is inferior because it can't make us care. Then I wonder, can I let him get away with making a bad movie just because he did it on purpose? But then I run out of space.
