I just got done watching this movie with my family and I can honestly say that this is one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen.
The cast is perfect. Will Ferrell is absolutely incredible. Dustin Hoffman is excellent. Maggie Gyllenhaal is superb!
The style of the film is just impeccable. I don’t think I’ve seen a movie so artfully directed, shot, and editted in a very long time. Amazingly good use of technology, overlays, and good old-fashioned camera work.
And the bitter-sweet emotional roller coaster was almost too much to bear. I loved every minute of it!
I realize that I’m coming across as more of a gushing, emotional school girl than a cool, sophisticated movie reviewer, but my head is still swimming with the emotions, suspense, angst, and adrenaline that a good movie imbues upon its fortunate viewers.
Mostly, all I can say is “WOW.” Stranger Than Fiction was a delicious adventure. I would be very surprised if it does not earn more than a few awards at this year’s… award thingeys…
Most excellent cinematography.
This is film at its finest.
