Stranger than Fiction opening

by Critical Commons Manager

The opening scene of Marc Forster's Stranger Than Fiction begins with a virtual camera descent from outer space, merging seamlessly with a virtual flythrough into the bedroom of the film's main character, an IRS auditor played by Will Ferrell. This grand visual gesture sets the stage for a hybrid physical/virtual world in which intra- and extra-diegetic narrative elements interact across boundaries of conventional cinematographic reality.
