Storyline

The Texture of Falling is unlike any film that you've ever seen. Set against the lush landscape of the Pacific Northwest, it's a film that transcends genre and defies classification - part psychological drama and part sexual thriller. It follows Louisa (Julie Webb) as a filmmaker reeling from a recent professional dejection, who meets Luke (Patrick Green), a pianist experiencing his own artistic crisis. Despite a long-term relationship with Ati, (Donny Persons), Louisa is intrigued by Luke. As Louisa falls for him, her skepticism of romantic love begins to unravel as she surrenders to her passions. But as Louisa and Luke's romance blooms, a simultaneous story arises as Michael (Benjamin Farmer), a wayward architect estranged from his wife, meets Sylvia, an enigmatic painter. But are these parallels merely a coincidence? Soon Michael and Sylvia embark on a verboten journey of pleasure and pain. But who is Sylvia? As Michael's lust crescendos, he realizes that he has chosen the elusive....

Fascinating and Nuanced
17 March 2019 | by TheAll-SeeingISee all my reviews

If one perceives a constant but tactile connectivity running through seemingly disparate events in life, let's stipulate that's it's tough sledding to find singular pieces of art reflective of that vague sense of intertwined totality. Yet somehow, writer/director Maria Allred has captured that exact zeitgeist in her butterfly net, and has installed it in spades in the wonderfully crafted The Texture of Falling.

Set in Portland, this is a powerfully visual film which casts its spell from the fringes inward, as Allred's use of imagery slowly builds the connective tissue between psychology and sexuality (among other islands) with terrific circle-of-life aplomb. Audiences demanding chronological storytelling need not apply, as The Texture of Falling instead works the sinewy outer margins, with Allred very intentionally throwing us into the churn by dissolving our expectations around linear-metered presentation. The film offers up two couples: Louisa (Julie Webb) is an aspiring filmmaker attempting to actualize her career with a fledgling first project. Her sex life is enveloped by an affair with married concert musician Luke (Patrick D. Green), who has no aspirations for commitment. Somewhere else in the world, we find Sylvia - a strikingly sensual blonde played by Allred herself - having an affair with the married Michael (Benjamin Farmer), who finds himself ripe for the exploration of BDSM. In that sense, there's some smart opportunism to Allred's filmmaking, as The Texture of Falling finds a legit market space by presenting the psychological emotionalism of BDSM as a defining element, yet one which was so embarrassingly absent from Fifty Shades of Grey.

It's in the film's wonderfully conceived culmination where Allred moves The Texture of Falling from a tapestry of fragments to the wholly realized vision we then realize she's set us up for all along. A clarity arrives, and it leaves us with the remarkable feeling that we've just become fluent in what was once just a beautifully-heard language. In the end, The Texture of Falling somehow delivers on its own massive ambition to decode the fascinating by offering a definition for things arguably impossible to define.
