The Fall
31 October 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Director Jonathan Glazer has made feature films such as Sexy Beast. He also made music videos for bands such as Radiohead and Massive Attack.

This is a beautifully crafted short film where us utilises his skills in making short promos.

The BBC showed this short film with little fanfare. It just appeared to be broadcast.

Apparently inspired by a hunting photo taken of one of Trump's offsprings with a leopard. I saw elements of The Wicker Man, Us and Zardoz in this.

It is surreal as you view what looks like some kind of tribe from the past in masks out in a forest. However they pose for a photo with their intended victim who they are about to hang.

There are no words, there is strange music. I think the viewer has to make their mind up as to the meaning of this short film. Maybe it has something to say about persecution or mob violence or the madness of Brexit Britain.
