Falling Down

“I’m the bad guy?”

Michael Douglas has made a career playing compromised men, always willing to embrace the less-likable side of his characters.

This time out, his middle-aged paper-pusher is a man crumbling from the inside, having seen his job and home life vanish.

At first, he self-righteously vents against what he sees as the hypocrisy of a rapidly-changing world, claiming to be the last true truth teller.

But as he grows more violent, the façade crumbles.

Long before he comes face-to-face with equally-tired cop Robert Duvall, the truth is right in front of him – he always was an ass.
