The Falls (1980)
Critic Reviews for The Falls
The Falls turns cinema into a puzzle or game-one that Greenaway continues to play, with increasing indifference to the amusement of lesser minds.
Its value as cinema is, it goes without saying, iffy, but it's a perfect party movie
Greenaway's punning and deadpan humour underscore the futility of this project.
Audience Reviews for The Falls
A three-and-a-quarter-hour powerhouse display of imaginative,bizarre, quirky, utterly unique and dumbfounding dissonance.
ne of the most original films I've ever seen, stuffed to the gills with inventive little bits of business. Definitely not a movie for everyone: it's tough to get through (I doubt I'd ever attempt it in one sitting), has no "plot" and no emotional content, and the gimmicky-ness of it will certainly put some people off. But if you're looking for something fascinating, funny, ingenious, multi-layered, bizarre, and strikingly unique, it hits the spot.
You have to be a hardcore Peter Greenaway fan to make it through all the Falls (I am). Strange and very original and very long.
