Human Nature: The Shooting Script

by

Human Nature: The Shooting Script Cover

 

Staff Pick

I don't even know how to begin writing anything in relation to the work of Charlie Kaufman. Is he really the most original voice working in Hollywood — or, just an escaped mental patient who has gone undetected amidst the denizens of LA? In either case I love his work. I also love the incentive he gives us to want to buy one of his screenplays: not just for the script itself, but for the wildly funny introductions and deadpan mock interviews — the one in Human Nature had me scratching my head, until I realized he was doing a send-up of a P. T. Anderson interview about Magnolia — hilarious! Adaptation also has a great piece of critical commentary by Robert McKee, whose screenwriting seminar book Story was as much a basis of the script as was Susan Orlean's The Orchid Thief. And, for those of you who have been wondering, "When will Charlie Kaufman release a new picture that will send shockwaves through my brain?" you don't have long to wait. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is being released in theaters in March 2004.

Publisher Comments:

Charlie Kaufman's unconventional worldview is once again in evidence in this powerful satirical exploration of a civilization that idealizes both nature and culture. A philosophical burlesque about an obsessive scientist, a female naturalist, and their discovery — a man raised in the wild.

In the acclaimed Newmarket Shooting Script series format, the book contains a facsimile of the shooting script, an interview with writer Charlie Kaufman, a 16-page color still insert, and full cast and crew credits.

Review:

Charlie Kaufman's unconventional worldview is once again in evidence in this powerful satirical exploration of a civilization that idealizes both nature and culture. A philosophical burlesque about an obsessive scientist, a female naturalist, and their discovery—a man raised in the wild.
