The film Stranger Than Fiction was ok. But the GUI (graphic user interface) was great. Looking for patterns, order, categories...these comprise my internal running monologue. And if I happen upon an anomaly in an otherwise consistent pattern my brain quickly "corrects" it in my mind's eye. The film gave reason to talk to my dad about this trait that, as it turns out, he & I share. So I'm not sure if this film inspired me as much as it resonates & reflects my artistic voice & vision.
