Stranger than Fiction
Sheer genius. It’s been a while since a movie like this has come along, a movie that blows your mind in a kind of down to earth, matter of fact way. A comedy that isn’t laugh out loud funny, but very pleasing to watch, a comedy that makes you smile on the inside.
A story so outlandishly unique that most will call it stupid, but a select few will fall in love with it. A movie that will transport you back to other movies that have left you in a similar state of mind, such as the equally brilliant Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
But it is more than just a movie, it’s a timeless tale of mans desire to meet the person who is narrating his story, the person who created him. It’s about waking up to the possibility that there is another dimension to our lives, one in which the possibilities are endless.
It’s an awakening of the senses, a realisation that there is more to your life than you originally believed there to be.
Food for thought
Do you just exist, or are you actively listening to the narrators prompting?
