Apologies for the flash frames and the creepy child's laughter at the end. That is not a part of the movie, but for some reason the youtube user felt to upload that as "credits"
STRANGER THAN FICTION - If you're having writers block, take a minute to consider that there might possibly be a very good reason. Like say maybe that the characters you're writing about somehow might not be fictional... and perhaps methods of killing them aren't coming to you for your own eventual peace of mind. I mean I don't know about you, but I wouldn't really want to be responsible for killing a real human being, who I thought was my own creation. Such is the story of Harold Crick in Stranger Than Fiction. I really like this movie, it's a fantastical idea and a fun one. Though I do have a little trouble swallowing some of the motivations by Dustin Hoffman's character near the end of the movie, it's hardly a dealbreaker.
SECRET WINDOW - See previous entry. Haha just kidding, I'll go into a bit more depth than just that. Yes there's a lot of similarities to The Shining and with good reason. Both this and The Shining came from author Stephen King...so I'd say it's a safe bet to guess that the man suffered from the block a time or two. But what's worse than just writers block? Maybe someone accusing you of plagiarism in the middle of said writers block. This is what happens to poor ol' Johnny Depp soon after his wife Maria Bello cheated on him (!?) making him even more emotionally vulnerable. Luckily the accusation and all the terror that follows it of course only lends itself to the perfect type of material one blocked writer could use in his next book or his next [SPOILER highlight to read ]murder.
