Falling Upward
24 August 2002 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

The music's forgettable but will have become part of you, once you've replayed "On Your Mark" enough times to decipher it. Bypassing as much as possible of what's already on this page, what struck me, last viewing, was except for very beginning which is really a flash forward to the very end, nothing takes place at ground level. Everything seems to happen in or between towers. Falling's a big deal. Witness the oh no!/yes go! collapse that ends the rescue sequence. Finally the two rescuers are grounded, though speeding forward, and the `angel' appears to fall, though naturally, with as little trauma as imaginable, upward. The hands' release modifies the Sistine Chapel detail, but also echoes many of Robert Bresson's shots of hands.
