Inside this Book – A long time ago in far-off India there was a merchant who lived in one of the northern provinces. He was very successful, but he was living in a dog eat dog world, not unlike our own, and was very unhappy. “My God,” he thought, “there has to be more to life than this.” So one day he went into the mountains to consult a famous guru who lived in one of the remote caves. And he asked the guru: “What is our true destiny?” The guru was impressed by his sincerity and said, “I’m going to show you.” And he handed the merchant two potatoes and added, “But you have to do exactly what I say.” The merchant was eager to proceed and the guru gave him his instructions. “Take these two potatoes to the little stream at the bottom of the hill outside this cave. Very carefully wash both potatoes and eat them. Then return to the cave.” The merchant took the two potatoes and went down the hill to the stream. He very carefully washed the first potato and ate it. But while he was washing the second potato, an old woman came out of the forest at that spot and approached him. She was obviously very poor. She told him a sad story and begged him for something to eat. He was deeply moved. He gave her the second potato and she ate it.
Inside this book –Stealing Fire from the Gods PDF Book by James Bonnet – The whole truth about story is like a large circle with a hundred dimensions. Each of these dimensions is so powerful that many of them can be isolated and made into a successful story or story film even if all of the other major dimensions are more or less unrealized. Character is one of these dimensions. Action, structure (plot), imitations of real life, metaphor, suspense, horror, and ironic comedy are others. But there are many more. And a number of important filmmakers and novelists have created major successes by excelling in or perfecting just one or sometimes two of these powerful dimensions. Eddie Murphy’s use of character in Beverly Hills Cop is a good example. Like Charlie Chaplin and Woody Allen before him, Eddie Murphy is a man who understands the character he plays, and Axel Foley, the character he created in this film, is brilliantly conceived, containing many of the delightful attitudes and qualities we saw being developed on Saturday Night Live. But the picture falls short in just about every other important dimension. The action is contrived, the plot and imitations of real life are extremely weak, metaphor is practically nonexistent, it lacks real suspense, and so on.
