The basic story's narrative and psychological simplicity - characters stating their beliefs over and over again - becomes an increasing burden.
A substandard "crime drama" that reeks of the Idiot Plot Syndrome.
"After the Fall" belongs to a type of movie that is too lazy to connect the dots and fill in the blanks between its supposedly teachable moments.
If you can avoid dwelling on its derivative qualities, "After the Fall" has its own case to make about how far the middle class has fallen - and continues to slide.
[The film] has much to recommend, including gorgeous New Mexico landscapes, sumptuous digital cinematography and -- as we might expect from Klein -- virtuoso editing.
Scanlon's desperate dive into a life of armed robbery is simply not believable, despite Bentley's best efforts.
There are hints along the way of the socioeconomic strife that Klein wants to explore, yet they become lost in a muddled screenplay that doesn't establish sympathy for its protagonist or his plight.
Forgettable...Bentley is bland, first scene to last, and thanks to its subject, the film is instantly dated
Fall isn't going to cure the world's ills, but it does define a few of them to satisfaction, creating an engrossing journey into extremity without ringing all the obvious bells on the way down.
A film that could only succeed by sorting through gradually darkening shades of gray works exclusively in embarrassingly bold strokes.
Moral ambiguity is center stage, and the film ultimately succeeds by sending audiences home to ponder their own levels of sin.
Beautifully shot but disappointingly slack, Things People Do is ultimately as dull and forgettable as its title.
***Spoilers Ahead.Most definitely*** After reading the movie description I had high hopes for After The Fall.I was hoping for a Falling Down type of movie or something like that.I even wanted to at least like the movie but I didn't like it at all.It started out interesting enough but after 10-15 minutes it became almost..... boring.I don't know why I didn't turn it off & watch something else.I think I was thinking maybe it would get better or I just wanted to see how it would all end.Some of the stuff Bill Scanlon did was so stupid I couldn't figure out if he was trying to get caught or he was just a complete nutjob.1 thing I do know, he was a lucky guy.He becomes friends with a detective who use to know Scanlon's father while he was on the force.The detective figures out Scanlon is the robber but instead of busting him, he lets Scanlon know they're after him.When Scanlon decides to turn himself in, the detective tells him not to
