The Fall – Opening Credits

January 12, 2009

This is one of my favorite opening scenes in film. Although I feel that the rest of the film does not live up to these first moments, the opening can be looked at by itself as a wonderful spectacle of cinematography and direction. The Fall (2006) was directed by acclaimed commercial/music video artist, Tarsem Singh. He is also credited for being the mastermind behind the beautifully psychotic visual wonder that is The Cell (2000) (yep, that movie with J-Lo and Vince Vaughn)…Another movie that pretty much doesn’t do justice for the visuals that are included, but you get the idea…

Also, if you’ve been reading this site for a while, you’ll notice that this exact musical accompaniment by Beethoven was used in an earlier covered film:

Irreversible

-Beethoven’s Symphony No 7 In A Major, Op.92 (2-Allegretto)-
