As Kaufman told me in an interview soon after Being John Malkovich appeared, if you start a script knowing where it's going to end up, then you've already failed. The Robert McKee story-structure approach needs to be thrown out. The Buñuel/Kaufman method - every new scene a hard-left turn into the dizzying unknown - is the only true path to originality.
