Critic Reviews for Fall

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

An essentially straight-faced story about a cocky New York cabbie (Schaeffer) who gets into a hot and heavy affair with a European supermodel.

Fortunately, when America's love affair with Eric Schaeffer finally kicks in, there will be a fat back-catalog of little-seen Eric Schaeffer projects ready to be discovered.

Fall leans too heavily in the direction of vain and smug.

Top Critic

A narcissistic, ego-driven gabfest courtesy of indie auteur Eric Schaeffer, who appears not to have figured out that therapy is cheaper than moviemaking.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Fall often feels like a remake of 9 1/2 Weeks, with Schaeffer seemingly competing with Mickey Rourke for most..disgusting sleazeball ever committed to celluloid.

Despite a few decent lines of dialogue this is generally, really stupid.

Audience Reviews for Fall

Fall is a raw and sensual romantic drama that lacks passion. The story follows a New York City cab driver who pursues a supermodel after they have a chance encounter. Eric Schaeffer and Amanda De Cadenet lead the cast, but they don't have any chemistry and their performances are rather weak. The writing tries too hard to be witty and insightful, and ends up feeling superficial. Schaeffer's directing is also poor, and does nothing to enhance the themes of the film. Though the execution fails, Fall is a provocative film that has some interesting things to say about relationships.

I love this movie! Yes, the plot is a bit contrived, and Decadenet isn't the best actress, but the poetry is absolutely orgasmic and for that I will forgive Eric Schaeffer anything. He is a genius and I adore him!
