Sashenka P (gb) wrote: Stranger Than Fiction is a fantastically unconventional film starring Will Ferrell, Emma Thompson, Queen Latifah, Dustin Hoffman, and Maggie Gyllenhaal. This comedic drama allows the viewer to experience the story of their own life in a new perspective. Harold Crick (Will Ferrell), is an IRS agent living in America in our present day who goes about his daily mundane routine: brushing his teeth with a certain amount of strokes, timing how long it takes him to tie his necktie, and counting every step he takes on his way to the bus for work. One day, however; Harold is surprised by the voice of a woman (Emma Thompson) narrating his life. Though Harold can hear her clearly all around him describing his every move, everyone else seems to be oblivious to the voice. The only person who believes that his life is indeed being narrated by an outside figure is a university English professor (Dustin Hoffman). Harold first seeks him out in desperation when the narrator in his head says that a malfunctioning of his wristwatch will lead to his death. In order to find out whether he will truly die or not, he listens intently to the professor's advice. They meet up consistently trying to narrow down what kind of story the narrator is dictating. While this is going on, Harold is also in the midst of auditing a woman named Ana Pascal. Harold develops feelings for Ana and the professor uses this to determine what genre of literature Harold's life is playing out. If Harold's new love life is advancing and enjoyable, then it would appear that he were in a comedy, and if not, then he would be the main character of a tragedy which would end in his imminent demise. One day, during a meeting with the professor, Harold hears the narrator's voice on the TV in the professor's office. The narrator is in fact a famous author named Karen Eiffel. He then goes on a journey in search of this author who is inevitably trying to find a way to kill the main character, Harold Crick, in her latest novel. Harold has little time before Karen's typewriter will conclude his life with his untimely death. One prominent aspect of this wonderfully crafted film is the use of props. The director, Marc Forster, uses commonplace objects to form vivid images in the mind of his viewers. For instance, the toothbrush Harold uses each morning to brush each one of his teeth a set number of times is the first tool he uses to get out of his mundane routine. At his moment of conversion from rigid order to just simply living for every minute of every day, Harold picks up his toothbrush and brushes so fast that it is impossible to keep track by counting strokes. This demonstrates how Harold has let go of his tight grasp on his life and has resolved to being free of such precision such as counting brush strokes. Another example is the green apple Harold grabs out of the fruit bowl to eat for breakfast just as he heads out the door for work each morning. The same ordinary apple rolls by Karen in her search for a meaningful death for her character, and in this moment, it becomes clear to her how her tragic hero must die. There is another moment in the film when Harold realizes while taking an apple from the dish that this is the last one he will eat before his last breath is whisked away by the thumping of Karen's fingers on the keys of her typewriterA second aspect of the film that adds to the characters' individual personalities is the use of background music. The most obvious display of this in the film is the music that plays while Harold performs his morning routine. It is the same every time the viewer sees him brushing his teeth, tying his tie, and counting his steps to the bus stop. The music is quiet, simple, and repetitive just like Harold Crick's life. On the other hand, whenever Ana's bakery appears in the film, punk rock music blares in the background, filling the atmosphere with aggressive and rebellious vibes. This is very much a description of Ana's character. She is quite a troublemaker, refusing to pay her taxes in entirety and, as a result, is being audited for her lack of cooperation. She makes her own set of rules. She paves a road for herself as a university dropout and starts her own business. She is her own boss and lives life as she sees fit. The effective music in this film goes above enhancing the intensity of the production but also shows the stark contrast between the different characters. As a whole, this film sends a brilliant message on the meaning of life. It makes the audience reflect on their own lives and judge whether they have lived meaningful and gratifying lives or have been their own cruel orderly taskmaster. Through the thoughtful use of different elements such as props and background music, just to name a couple, this film is a major success. I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Scott H (jp) wrote: The film is effective early on in making Eddie Murphy's character sympathetic despite his background. It perfectly balances an adult sense of humor with scenes of slapstick comedy, consistently delivering some sort of attention grabber. The supporting cast lends itself well to helping Murphy to not be the focal point of everything. Overall a very well-made comedy and movie.

David D (ag) wrote: Only 5 other people have rated this film? Pity. It's not a masterpiece but it's successful enough at being a romance of manners, by way of Tennessee Williams (upon whose play this script is based).

Noel V (br) wrote: "Superficially superficial." The phrase spoken aloud in the film incarnates the film in a mere two words. It's superficially just about the most beautiful film ever made, with handsome lover Vittorio de Sica battling out impervious husband Charles Boyer for the hand of heartstoppingly gorgeous Danielle Darrieux, the camera spinning and gliding around them like a fourth character in a menage a trois, drunk on the intensity of their emotions. But beneath the glittering surfaces everyone eventually realizes much to their annoyance, that real passion is involved and, ultimately, real loss; a pair of earrings picked for having no meaning whatsoever become the most important object in the world; and a film that trades so heavily on callow aristocracy and stylized artifice comes to represent for us, much to our surprise and possibly to our profoundest annoyance, one of the finest examples ever of the art of cinema.

Jack G (ag) wrote: as thriller and drama it's OK, but Schatzberg's direction doesn't do much for the slightly shaggy story. what makes it worth watching so far past its 80s-New York time? Morgan Freeman, Morgan Freeman, and here and there Christopher Reeve (he's limited as an actor, but he fares alright here). Did I mention Morgan Freeman?
