Critic Reviews for The Falling
There are so many acute insights, striking images and impressive performances in it, not least from lead Maisie Williams, it's a tragic shame that elsewhere inexperience shows and the last 15 minutes devolve into a morass of melodramatic incident.
Carol Morley shows startling versatility and ambition with this jawdropping mash-up of 'If' and 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'.
An imperfect but alluring study of psychological contagion that marks an auspicious advance in the field of narrative filmmaking for acclaimed docmaker Carol Morley.
The Falling speaks out to young women and represents that feeling of discomfort and complete bewilderment about their bodies, their futures and their minds.
The end result is a mish-mash of promising ideas lost in naff filmmaking.
Audience Reviews for The Falling
I really enjoyed this. I can see why someone wouldn't, if they were expecting a horror movie. It's not, it's a psychological mystery. The whole thing is clearly a metaphor for teenage female sexuality. I got that, and I'm usually the last one to "get" this type of thing. I think it's pretty well done. It's quite creepy but still manages to be engaging. Admittedly, the brother is a bit of a wtf, but honestly I don't think this one is to be taken too literally.
Very much in the tradition of Picnic At Hanging Rock and Beautiful Creatures, The Falling is an idiosyncratic and wonderfully acted masterpiece.
