->''"I don’t worry about originality, a word our countrymen use to describe novelty. But Capote was unusually derivative. We used to play a game with Capote’s work. We’d read a passage from ''A Tree of Night'' or ''Other Voices, Other Rooms'' and then try to find whom he had stolen it from. Carson [=McCullers=] was his principal quarry, but he did very well with Eudora Welty. I even found scenes from old WarnerBros movies that he had lifted. He was ruthlessly unoriginal."''

Then you find out that he cribbed Sam Jackson's 'lay my vengeance' speech in ''PulpFiction'' from an old Creator/SonnyChiba movie, and you start to get suspicious...God, can you imagine talking to this guy? Like, as a person? Would you spend the whole time worried that if you said something clever it would show up in one of his movies and film students would cream themselves over it?"''
