Hitalec, make a movie thread? WHAT BLACK MAGIC HAS PERSUADED SUCH AN EVENT?!
Well, good stranger, a little indie flick called...The Fall.
Actually, I led you on a bit...
...it's less of a LITTLE indie flick and more of a HUGELY...HUGE...FUCKING HUGE...flick.
But hey, leading someone on? That's a good segue...
...For you see, the story revolves around a man who uses a little girl to get what he wants. (See what I did there?)
n a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman (Pace) begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm (Untaru), a fantastical story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances.
Of course, he demands, in response for the wondrous story, payment in the form of medicine to feed his suicidal urges.
This movie got bad reviews. A LOT of bad reviews.
That being said, it's gotten a fair share of GOOD reviews, but, usually, in my cases, the film is critically acclaimed by all means (recent ones including There Will Be Blood, No Country For Old Men, etc..).
The reviews mean nothing to me, in this case. I have yet to see this movie but, on the 9th, when it comes out on DVD...
...I will plunge into this fantastical realm and I can safely say I'll enjoy every minute of it.
