    I have The Fall but I haven't watched it yet. It looks really intriguing visually.

    The Fall is ok, worth watching at least once.

    The Fall was made by Tarsem, the same guy who made the REM "Losing My Religion" video and The Cell, which is a sweet serial killer movie, with the twist that the serial killer is already in a coma.

    The Cell is visually amazing, imagining the subconscious of a monster. D'Onofrio is awesome in that. Highly recommended.

    The Fall is a kids' adventure movie, about the wonders of the imagination. It's also visually stunning, but it ends up disappointing, because not much happens, and the inner workings of a child's mind are comparatively uninteresting. It appears to be filmed on every location on the planet, however. (I think the director had problems with financing, so it took a while to finish.) Visually amazing, but not much depth behind the image.

    Maybe good to watch if you're stoned, or you have children. Either/or.

    The opening shot off the bridge is pretty cool, though.
