Not long after reading this, I came across another article which talked about cutting scripts down to the bone. As I was in the process of adapting novel into screenplay, I felt that this advice was just instinctively wrong and it got me thinking that maybe this is another reason why Hollywood is making bad movies. Maybe the scripts are just too bare for people to get into the story...?? Here is my own take on the controversy, typically infused with a good helping of Irish humour "Cut the Fat, But Not the Flesh".
