Or will he lose sight of himself and shatter the illusion of a regular life for all?Written by
I saw FALLING at the DNA film fest in Toronto and greatly enjoyed it. It was thoughtful and solid, with great performances. I liked that it didn't rely on quick cuts and other "MTV" like gimmicks to give it substance. This one really stood on its own and to me, felt real--the way the characters spoke and dress--I have seen the same type of people on the streets! While the story is a classic one about guilt and redemption, the way it plays out is refreshingly different. Things don't always unfold the way you think it is going to. It subverts some stereotypes. It also had a nice, rich look to it. I highly recommend FALLING.
