So what if the front story is a little contrived?

Often praised -- and rightly so -- for its incredible visuals and nonstop stylishness. I have no problem with that, except that I'm equally taken by its thematic implications.

I wonder if it's unforgivable heresy to say The Cell is badly underestimated and due for revisionism while The Fall, despite its relative obscurity, is badly overestimated.

...a movie that not only expected me to pay attention, it assumed that I could.

The girl and the hospital patients and staff also turn up in his improvised adventure, extravagantly garbed by costume designer Eiko Ishioka.

Something like a Sir David Lean epic crossed with trippy offshoots of tall tales of Zorro, Ali Baba and Pecos Bill rolled into one, The Fall is a sun-kissed companion to Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth. A brilliant follow-up from Tarsem Singh.

Tarsem has found a home for his endlessly unique visions, and (wouldn't you know?) it's beyond artifice and stealing toward art.

San Diego Metropolitan

The story Roy tells is involving enough and so beautifully shot (see how many locations you can name) that it's worth seeing for that alone.

Shadows on the Wall

One of the most beautiful things ever put on the big screen. On the other hand, the story is far too thin for adults, and far too dark for kids.

This is London

The film may look a treat in a static kind of way but the whole is a piece of turgid pictorialism that ends up unbearably dull.

Daily Mirror [UK]

While nice to look at, it's also a very tedious slice of magical realism lacking in tension, suspense and, indeed, magic.

Beguiling, befuddling, brilliant. It's sure to divide audiences but, for all its ocular opulence and wild fantasy, at heart The Fall is a tender, touching tale about childhood, hope and the power of story.

But The Fall defies low expectations, proving the director can now partner his exquisite pictures with a ripping yarn.

The Fall is hugely ambitious, but ultimately it's just an intriguing folly.

Does The Fall amount to anything more than a vast sugar-frosted folly? I'm not convinced it does, although its wanton extravagance is not without charm. Singh has money to burn and he builds a pretty bonfire.

Times [UK]

The visuals that illustrate the fairytale fantasy are extraordinary. But the film has none of the menacing brilliance of Pan's Labyrinth. The result is a triumph of style over talent.

A must-watch for lovers of the strange and unusual, this visually ravishing oddball drama has sequences of genuine beauty and charm - even if it won't be to everyone's taste.

The pacing drags and the clichéd tussle between childhood innocence and adult disillusionment can only go one way. Better to experience it than think about it, fair to say.

Tarsem's film is breathtakingly imaginative, but at times you're left feeling like you've eaten too many sweets.
