*** Richard Kelly is a OneHitWonder who keeps trying to make the DonnieDarko script over and over again. It's the same with SouthlandTales.

** He wanted to make his own version of the story; this isn't really a bad thing, as even though Holes did get a quality movie adaptation, most books won't, and in those cases it's much more interesting to see a new version of the story than a bad attempt at the same version. I know a lot of people like the Holes movie, but if it didn't exist, the book would still have the same story there, so it's not like anything is lost by an alternate version. Though, the amount of kids who would have watched the movie would have been a disaster.

** It is likely that he left the mountain after a while to try to find his way back home. Magical or not, a diet of onions and water can't sustain a person forever, and he must have had a life he needed to get back to. As for why no one looked there for him, it's probably because no one knew of the reservoir there, and figured he had perished in the desert heat. He may have been found entirely by accident after he left the thumb.

*** A possible mundane explanation for the water running uphill in both locations could be that it's really just an optical illusion: water ''appears'' to be running uphill when it actually isn't. They're called gravity hills. That said, the unique location of both God's Thumb and the stream in Latvia may still imply a quasi-supernatural origin for both since most (or maybe even all) real gravity hills are manmade, either as deliberate "mystery spot" attractions or random consequences of building a road and the like in just the right place.

** It isn't that you must have a lawyer, you have THE RIGHT to one. Zeroni's curse must of caused Stanley to refuse that right.

[[folder: Stalney I's survival]]
* If Stanley Yelnats I found refuge in the desert by climbing up the mountain and finding [[spoiler: Sam's old onion patch]], then how and where did anyone find him? Did they climb the mountain, too? If so, how does no one know how he survived when whoever found him had to have seen it? Or did Stanley I leave the mountain and go back into the desert, and someone found him there? If so, why would he leave the onion field when everything he needed to survive was right up there with him?

*** Upon some reading up on this, I see what you mean. But it seems to happen with quite a few adaptions, trying to make drastic changes so they seem darker or grittier - just look at films like ''Percy Jackson'' or the ''Super Mario Bros.'' movie. It's just a case of getting a clueless writer who wanted to change too many things. Just be thankful they realized this mistake and got rid of him.

**** I just checked Trivia. A man named Richard Kelly was going to be the one to handle the movie's script but he made a metric ton of bizarre changes so the script writer was changed.
