“Why a Good Script is Like a Thong Bikini”

I brake when I see a headline such as this:  “Why a Good Script is like a Thong Bikini.” That was the title of a piece by Katie Wech, a screenwriter, who was writing for the Word Craft column in The Wall Street Journal on May 1, 2011.

The point of the article is that in screenplays, unlike novels, you have to describe a character in a sentence—and it better be a good one—because, based on that, “everyone from a casting director to a costume designer bring that person to life.” What seems to unite these two phenomena—the screenplay and the thong—is Occam’s Razor—the principle of parsimony. Less is more.  I like that!
