Silent Fall Reviews

February 1, 2007
Poorly scripted by Akiva Goldsman, this murder mystery (helmed by Bruce Beresford) represents an awkward synthesis of autism and family abuse as social problems, failing to deliver suspense or excitement on any level.

Beresford draws the best from a fine cast. Only when he tries to up the thrill quotient near the end are the contrivances of Akiva Goldsman's debut script revealed, like cracks in the smooth surface of a frozen lake.

So predictable that you would almost swear you'd seen it before.

It's the kind of picture that results when a film maker loses sight of the fact that a portion of his audience might actually think while watching a movie.

Silent Fall, a dramatically repressed psychodrama, could be sued for creative malpractice.
