I watched The Fall today.



This movie was filmed over a period of 4 years in 18 different countries and let me tell you - It was beautiful. Gorgeous. Breath-taking (I'm not lying here. There was a single scene shot in the Dragon's Backbone rice terraces in China and my jaw just dropped open).

The visuals are absolutely stunning. The main theme takes place in 1920s Los Angeles. Lee Pace (of Pushing Daisies) plays a patient in a hospital who spins an epic yarn for a little girl.

While this film was GORGEOUS, I thought that it was a little uneven. You have your typical allegory - the epic tale is a metaphor for the "reality" surrounding the narrator (generally an unreliable one) and the audience. I thought that the breaking of the fourth wall was self conscious and forced at times and, while I LOVE Lee Pace, I thought that he struggled a bit as his own mirror character in the fairy tale.

I spent a lot of the movie thinking, "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen did it better."

That being said, I absolutely recommend this film. It goes a little long, but it's highly enjoyable. I also know that I tend to be over-critical, so I guarantee that this will most likely be enjoyed by all. I'm always looking for updated fairy tales (like the above mentioned Munchausen, Time Bandits, MirrorMask, Dark Crystal, etc.), and this was fun to watch.
