Read full description of the books Short Cuts: the screenplay:This screenplay read fairly well, and is a good example of adapting an author's short stories for a film. The screenwriters took a lot of liberties with Carver's work. They intercut a bunch of his stories, made the characters lives overlap, and added some new material, usually stuff to make it more dramatic. The setting moves from Oregon to the L.A. suburbs, and the characters seem younger and better off. The movie is actually pretty good, and it works as a collaboration between Altman and Carver. However, there is one unforgivable incident at the end, when one character kills a teenage girl during an earthquake for no apparent reason, and then just gets away with it. Huh? What the #$%# is Altman trying to say? The movie is still worth watching though, for the portrayals of relationships by actors like Tom Waits and Lily Tomlin, Julianne Moore and Matthew Modine, and others.
