William (D-FENS) just wants to get home to see his daughter on her birthday. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be going right for him.

Joel Schumacher's Falling Down is really an under-rated film. Michael Douglas gives his best performance yet as a middle aged man who is now gone completely insane. I compare it to American Beauty and George Carlin because basically that is what this is. A regular guy who's had enough of life (and goes around lecturing people about how life for him sucks). Still, Schumacher, Douglas and co-star Robert Duvall try their best and succeed with perfect precision. One of the best films of 1993.
