I am inspired by style. Like a music video, a film needn't have a lot of depth if the style is visionary, creative and unique. The Cell starring Jennifer Lopez was a movie which really left an impression on me when it was released. It had such an original vision and I craved more from it's first time director. The Fall is his follow up. With a cover art stating "David Fincher & Spike Jonze Presents" it's clear that this is going to be something special. Watching the film is like being lost inside a Salvador Dali painting. The colours and movements are extraordinary. It tells the story of a little girl inside a hospital in the 1920s who meets a paralysed Hollywood stuntman. They strike an unlikely friendship as the man begins to tell her a story about the origin of her name, Alexandria. The film mostly takes place in the fantasy world he describes where everything is false and completely lucid. This magical story-world doesn't make any sense and so much time is given to its description. A major part of its charm is that its mostly incomprehensible. As the story crosses back to the real world we are treated to revelations about the man and possibly an ulterior motive. The performances are solid and the little girl is really impressive. I read that the interaction between the two was largely improvised. What I love most about The Fall is that upon repeat viewings, what was originally intangible slowly becomes tangible. Like good abstract art, its confusion and complexity makes sense. This is a magical and provoking film. See it.
