REVIEW ↠ FUTBOLENTRELINEAS.CO ↠ Elmore Leonard READ ¼ Get Shorty Elmore Leonard ↠ 1 READ Mob connected loan shark Chili Palmer is sick of the Miami grind plus his “friends” have a bad habit of dying there So when he chases a deadbeat client out to Hollywo. El Leonard had a bad Hollywood experience in the mid 80s of working on a film adaptation of LaBrava with Dustin Hoffman Leonard did multiple unpaid rewrites at the actor s reuest but then Hoffman bailed on the project after six months of meetings leaving Leonard with nothing to show for his time Leonard s revenge was Get Shorty and what sweet revenge it isChili Palmer is a small time loan shark in Miami who once got into a beef with another gangster Ray Barboni who has held a grudge against him Unfortunately Chili ends up working for Ray who immediately demands that Chili shake down overdue payment from a dry cleaner A twisted trail eventually leads Chili to LA where he gets mixed up with Harry Zimm a small time producer of horror movies who has a new script that flighty superstar actor Michael Weir has expressed an interest in Harry thinks he can use Michael s name to get a big studio deal to make something better than schlock for a change but he s got a problem with a drug dealer name Bo Catlett who usually finances his movies to launder drug moneyChili is a big movie buff who thinks he might give up loan sharking for producing and he sets out to help Harry get a deal with the help of Karen Flores a former actress known for screaming in Harry s horror movies who just so happens to be Michael s ex Unfortunately Bo Catlett has also been dreaming of breaking into the film industry and starts trying to drive Chili away from Harry with the idea of taking over the project The surface level of this is funny enough with its core idea of a gangster trying to get into the movie business but where it achieves greatness is the twist it takes once Chili meets Michael When his pitch for Harry s movie isn t getting through Chili starts talking about his recent adventures and Michael is intrigued Without realizing it Chili essentially begins pitching his story as it s happening to Michael and the short actor pounces on the idea of playing a loan shark The problem is that Chili doesn t know how it s going to end yetLeonard always had a great knack of playing off the way that people perceive themselves and each other This pays off even since so many Hollywood characters are involved that the story is being discussed and thought about as a movie even while it happens So when Chili confronts a thug of Catlett s and throws him down a flight of stairs while Karen watches she s mentally breaking it down like a film scene instead of being shocked by what she saw When someone asks Chili who the protagonist is Chili is shocked that it s not apparent that the loan shark is the good guy because to him it s obvious that he s the hero of this story While some writers might have let this idea of a story unfolding and being pitched as a movie at the same time get too clever for its own good and been tempted to push the idea into complete nonsense Leonard s brevity and sharp plotting keep it grounded as a crime story with humor rather than letting it turn into some kind of meta fiction writing exercise As usual you also get all the hallmarks of Leonard in his prime with great dialogue and memorable charactersOf course the ultimate fitting end to Leonard s satirizing of Hollywood is that this was eventually turned into a hit film Dustin Hoffman was not involved Tempted by the Badge To Serve and Seduce #2 just so happens to be

REVIEW ↠ FUTBOLENTRELINEAS.CO ↠ Elmore Leonard READ ¼ Get Shorty Elmore Leonard ↠ 1 READ S ideal for an enterprising criminal with a taste for the cinematic Besides Chili’s got an idea for a killer movie though it could very possibly kill him to get it made. I would call this spoof noir It has all the noir elements you d find in a Raymond Chandler novel but not only none of the darkness but humor enough for smiles throughout Chili Palmer is not your stereotypical loan shark Collecting is just business Hurting people who don t pay shouldn t be necessary when all you have to do is look at them with that certain lookNeither is this any sort of stereotypical crime novel Which are the good guys and which the bad isn t as obvious as it should be Or at least it isn t as obvious when they are introduced and then well maybe But then maybe being a shylock isn t the only job in the worldThis was just too fun Pulp fiction that is so much better than pulp fiction It s a 4 plus or a 5 minus Because of its genre I can t uite bring myself to give it 5 stars I think others might though because yes it s fun Heroism Begins with Her Inspiring Stories of Bold Brave and Gutsy Women in the US Military just business Hurting people who don t pay shouldn t be necessary when all you have to do is look at them with that certain lookNeither is this any sort of stereotypical crime novel Which are the good guys and which the bad isn t as obvious as it should be Or at least it isn t as obvious when they are introduced and then well maybe But then maybe being a shylock isn t the only Buried Mountain Secrets job in the worldThis was Buried Mountain Secrets just too fun Pulp fiction that is so much better than pulp fiction It s a 4 plus or a 5 minus Because of its genre I can t uite bring myself to give it 5 stars I think others might though because yes it s fun
