Immediately upon viewing the trailer for Tarsem Singh’s upcoming film ‘The Fall’ I was reminded of the intensely rich surreal and psychedelic landscapes that Jodorowsky painted upon his cinematic masterpieces. While it’s quite a stretch to evenly correlate the two, I have high hopes for “The Fall.” Both Spike Jonze and David Fincher have put their necks out on the line to see that the Fall gets proper distribution, which I can only assume means that good things are in store for the film. I’ve been trying to avoid reading too much about the film after watching the simply awe inspiring preview for it, but I was able to grab this brief synopsis of the plot: “In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman (Pace) begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm (Untaru), a fantastical story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale”. I really cannot recommend enough to check out this preview:
