The Fall is a labour of love/self indulgent vanity project (depending on who you ask) from director Tarsem – previously a music video and commercials director who poured his own money into this 4 year project. Predictably, the flights of fancy are never quite thrilling enough to really carry you away, but the movie is saved by the really wonderful performances and pitch-perfect chemistry between stars Lee Pace and Catinca Untaru. Really, I could listen to them murmur all day. Another video after the jump.
Yep, watching this film has finally prompted me to give Pushing Daisies a go. At least I know it’s finite.
