The Fall

Posted in Movies at 12:13 am by Calico Jack

Apart from The Dark Night and WALL•E, this is the film I’m looking forward to most this summer. I was one of the most ardent defenders of The Fountain against those who proclaimed it to be all style and no substance, and I have a feeling that The Fall might require the same. Roger Ebert’s four-star review and the A.V. Club’s measured praise give me hope that the overall mixed reactions from critics might be a testament to its singularity. One can only hope this film doesn’t get lost in the arthouse shuffle this blockbuster season.
