Critic Reviews of "The Fall"Mark Bourne Film.comFebruary 02, 2009
...a movie that not only expected me to pay attention, it assumed that I could.Bill Stamets Chicago ReaderDecember 17, 2008
The girl and the hospital patients and staff also turn up in his improvised adventure, extravagantly garbed by costume designer Eiko Ishioka.Trevor Johnston Time OutOctober 03, 2008
The pacing drags and the clichéd tussle between childhood innocence and adult disillusionment can only go one way. Better to experience it than think about it, fair to say.John Hartl Seattle TimesMay 30, 2008
Pace and Untaru generate an unforced chemistry that makes them pleasant company for a couple of hours, but they almost work against the movie's need to establish narrative tension. They appear to be having such a good time that Roy's self-destructive impuPeter Hartlaub San Francisco ChronicleMay 30, 2008
An achingly beautiful movie and a triumph of location scouting, with more cosmopolitan spectacle than the past three Indiana Jones and James Bond movies combined.James Berardinelli ReelViewsMay 30, 2008
Sometimes, looking good isn't enough.Kelly VanceAugust 15, 2011
So what if the front story is a little contrived?Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)July 06, 2010
Often praised -- and rightly so -- for its incredible visuals and nonstop stylishness. I have no problem with that, except that I'm equally taken by its thematic implications.Walter Chaw Film Freak CentralJune 09, 2009
I wonder if it's unforgivable heresy to say The Cell is badly underestimated and due for revisionism while The Fall, despite its relative obscurity, is badly overestimated.Nick Rogers Suite101.comNovember 07, 2008
Something like a Sir David Lean epic crossed with trippy offshoots of tall tales of Zorro, Ali Baba and Pecos Bill rolled into one, The Fall is a sun-kissed companion to Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth. A brilliant follow-up from Tarsem Singh.Marc Savlov Austin ChronicleOctober 18, 2008
Tarsem has found a home for his endlessly unique visions, and (wouldn't you know?) it's beyond artifice and stealing toward art.Jean Lowerison San Diego MetropolitanOctober 18, 2008
The story Roy tells is involving enough and so beautifully shot (see how many locations you can name) that it's worth seeing for that alone.
