Imaginative Story World - A Rarity in 2014
13 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film stands out to me because of the successful creation of a story world. It seems to cut all ties from modern references in its plight to give us something nostalgic, yet entirely new. It's glossed over in a subtle way, almost like the memories of a 80's pop culture junkie, but WITHOUT any pop culture references. Falcon Song is not self aware, yet true to its cinematic heritage. This may be the film's strongest feature.

Gabriel Sunday is an explosive talent and his performance seems to charge each scene with a natural magnetism. Rainey Qualley plays it down, delivering a great opposite to Sunday and maintains this special balance as a girl with suppressed passions. Martin Kove seems to dig deeper into his character than many of his recent roles, including a humorous nod to 1930's Erol Flynn in the quirky finale. James Storm has a commanding presence and subtlety in his delivery that is solid as a rock.

The movie makes a valiant attempt at reviving a lost style. While clearly low budget, the vision is strong and true, despite its several shortcomings in the writing. Falcon Song throws away the crutches often utilized by artists in the independent arena. For this, I am left with a positive impression.
