Training montages

Dear Lord, I love a training montage.  My favorite is from Kill Bill 2 – where she learns how to break wood with her fingers – and there’s an immediate and straightforward payoff – if anything in that movie’s tortuous construction could be considered immediate and straightforward.

I wish I could do the writing equivalent of the training montage – but that would be hard to do – because it is so densely visual.  It’s not like there is a ton of dialogue.  This is where I think movies have it all over books.  Must consider this.
