“The Fall” a viewing

Finally got to watch Tarsem Singh’s “The Fall” last night.  I’ve been excited about this film for quite some time (see my first post on the movie).  I wa not disappointed.  The movie was absolutely beautiful, both in story and in overall look.  I don’t really feel like giving away too much.  “The Fall” is essentially a story within a story and it does it in a wonderfully and captivating way.  To a certain degree the dual story aspect reminded me of “Pan’s Labyrinth” in the sense that it succeeded in being interesting on both ends.  On top of the great stories is that aesthetic that I know Tarsem has been widely praised for.  In my opinion not in the least bit overrated.  Check it out, it is worth a watch.
