The Fall

Beauty above all else.

One of the most visually dazzling films of the 2000’s, this fantasy story from visionary director Tarsem Singh is stuffed with eye-popping images.

It also has a pretty good story.

There’s a badly-injured stuntman at its heart, as he entertains a young hospitalized girl by spinning epic tales of adventure, in much the same way Peter Falk did for Fred Savage in The Princess Bride.

Dashing heroes clash with dastardly villains, with the girl imagining people around them as the characters in the man’s tale.

Lush and poignant, and a perfect blend of style and substance.
