The Fall

the-fall

I finally got around to watching The Fall last week, and I have to say it’s perhaps one of the most visually stunning movies I’ve ever seen. The landscapes and the colors are just so unreal, it’s hard to believe that nothing is computer enhanced. I’ve probably watched it three times since I rented it, and then both commentaries, just because I wanted to see how they set everything up. It completely works as a fantasy/storybook version of India.

(For a slightly more realistic, gritty, but still cinematographically great version of India, Slumdog Millionaire is also gorgeous. I think I’m going to have to add both of these to my very small dvd collection.)

More of my favorite stills below, as well as the opening title sequence, which is graphically brilliant.
