With his directing debut, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005), Shane Black rocked the cinematic landscape, creating one the modern era’s great neo-noir crime films. And, if you think that statement is a stretch - well, I’m prepared to fight you tooth and nail over it.

Miranda himself claims that his work has been heavily influenced by Schönberg—Les Miserables was the first broadway show he had ever seen. The themes, structure, and compositions can all be tied back to Schönberg’s piece developed in the 1980s. These two plays are revolutionary in both their content and their stylistic elements.
