Tarantino vs. Gawker

Gawker leaked the first draft of Quentin Tarantino’s new script, a draft he says he sent privately to 6 people, and made it available for download on its site, and now QT is suing them. Go QT!

By exposing Tarantino’s script, they’re harming its value. Who would do that to a writer? A snarky jackass who’d do anything to get traffic across his site, that’s who, or maybe a hipper-than-thou “wit” who hates the fact that he has no creative fountain of his own, and therefore must find any reason to punish someone like QT. Love him or not, whatever one’s critique of his work may be, as a writer he’s a gifted craftsperson with a creative fountain that just keeps coming.

Clicking to share something I’ve seen on Gawker gives me the sick feeling that I’ve just put a dollar in a slot machine that bets it knows exactly what kind of superiority I enjoy feeling….oh, and it never pays back, either. I hope QT nails them.
