The Fall movie review
starring: Justine Waddell and Lee Pace
If you read the description of The Fall, it doesn't sound like much:
In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastical story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances.
But to be honest, this is probably the most visually stunning movie I've ever seen.
It is amazing all the visual effects that perforate this movie. (Think visual effects as in the way those in The Matrix stimulated audiences, not visual effects as in 'wow they made that gunshot and that guy look so real.'.)
To be sure, this movie is one that is a bit "out there". But it is so good that I need to see it a second time to absorb it all and really get the feel for it. And because it is so visually stimulating that it's hard to even see it all the first time through.
I highly recommend that you check out The Fall. (It's especially cool if you know that the little girl didn't know she was in a movie and the other actors were told to act around her and try to get her to say her lines without knowing they were lines.)
Please, do me a favor and see this movie. You'll be thinking about it for days at least.
