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.

...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.

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.

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.

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.

Enjoyable, well acted and visually stunning fantasy drama that is sure to divide audiences but is unlike anything else you'll see all year.

...plays like a fever dream of cinematic spectacle, offering a wide-screen parade of some of the most achingly beautiful and awe-inspiring cinematography ever to have been seen.
