Good point about Grizzly Man. I like grey-area cases like that. Regarding the noir example, the past-tense "was" makes it voice-over narration (i.e., extradiegetic) disguised as an interior monologue. If the guy was really talking to himself he'd say "She's trouble. Ain't that just like a dame.." or something like that.

  what about Herzog's brilliant Grizzly Man? There's a lot of footage of Tim Tredwell walking around the Alaskan wilderness talking, but of course he is the only person there, so even though it's not really interior much of what he says is just verbalising his thought process and wasn't intended for the public. can we see this as a manifestation of interior monologue?

  regarding interior dialogue, what about all those film noir movies where the audience are privy to the private investigator's thoughts, "she was a dame all right, and trouble" etc etc. has anybody said Fight Club?
