Film: The Fall – 2006
The Fall directed by Tarsem Singh starring Lee Pace, Justine Wadell and Catinca Untaro. Without giving to much away, The Fall is a story within a story. Lee Pace (Pushing Daiseys) plays an injured turn-of-the-century stuntman with a suicidal streak who, while in the hospital, tells a tale of adventure and violence to a young patient (the fabulous 6 year old, Cantinca Untaro) to help pass the time. Beautifully shot – in over 20 countries over 4 years, each scene resembles an oil painting, with its bold and vivid colors and perfect composition. Those that would argue that this is all style with little substance need to see it again. This is a beautifully created and creative film.
