No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Both plausibility and suspense, if not quite Fassbinder-grade toxic tension.
The Hackney-bound pals sulk, flirt and hoover up vast quantities of cocaine.
Ultimately let down by an irritating lead character, some dodgy acting, a frustrating, frequently dull plot and an unconvincing finale.
Gritty social realism is equated with people vomiting and taking drugs and the low-budget aesthetic results in casual framing and lots of rough edges.
The acting is patchy, episodes of kitchen-sink drama flat-footed, and - this could spell kiss of death to its cult potential - thuddingly earnest in places.
It's clear that the film wants to appeal to the gritty modern drama fans, but Break My Fall comes across as a bit beige where it could afford to get a bit more dirty.
